Better governing the global commons: climate, biodiversity, oceans, outer space

Environmental Crime in the Amazon Basin

If deforestation levels rise another 5% in the Amazon Basin, the planet’s largest tropical forest could experience catastrophic die-back, releasing the equivalent to a decade of global emissions. Regional efforts to end environmental crime are episodic and insufficient. In order to generate more widespread engagement with issues of environment crime, the Igarape Institute launched Ecocrime Data, a new online data visualization tool that aims to expose the ways in which illegally sourced products are flooding global supply chains. The initiative will develop regional strategies to promote transborder cooperation, monitor violence against front-line environmental and indigenous defenders and analyze illicit financial flows.
