A Floresta Amazônica possui importância indispensável para o equilíbrio terrestre, pois proporciona diversos serviços ambientais. O desmatamento é uma ameaça imediata a este ecossistema, pois afeta os níveis de evapotranspiração da floresta, tornando o clima local mais quente e seco; podendo influenciar no clima além de seus limites, devido à circulação atmosférica. Este estudo avalia os efeitos de longo prazo do desmatamento progressivo da Amazônia sobre a precipitação no Brasil, através do modelo CCM3-IBIS.

Policy reform is required to more accurately value natural capital and incentivize green investments through aligned subsidies, supportive financial measures, and risk mitigation support.
A centralized system that synthesizes evidence and connects projects to investors would both improve awareness of initiatives and funding sources, and build capacity and financial literacy.
Key information gaps persist in reporting, monitoring and impact assessment. Leveraging a centralized system could reduce redundancies, enhance cost-effectiveness and bridge finance gaps.
