Sample questions

AMAZALERT will address critical questions concerning the future of the Amazon region and its ecosystems, including: 

  • Will climate change cause forest die-back in the Amazon? If so, when and where is this likely to occur? 
  • How will people and policy respond to regional climate change and forest die-back? 
  • Which national or international policy measures, including REDD+, may be most effective in reducing die-back? 
  • Does deforestation aggravate climate-induced deterioration of forests and ecosystem services?
