- Final Meeting
AMAZALERT examined how global and regional climate and land-use changes will impact Amazonian forests, agriculture, waters, and people; and how these impacts feed back onto climate.
“The AMAZALERT project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 282664, and was co-funded by many national agencies an institutes.”
The day started with work packages presentations by its leaders. The outcomes and issues were discussed in a building with inside a temperature around 30 degrees. A lot has been done so fare, but there still have to be carried some issues. Some model outputs have to be processed; data from the different WP have to be integrated, articles to be published.

During the General Assembly, the financial and administrative issues were discussed, and topics such as papers to publish were pointed out. Around 6 pm the project meeting was concluded.
