Research on rural and urban sustainability in Amazonia rewarded with the Volvo Environment Prize 2023
Press release from the Volvo Environment Prize Foundation, Oct 30, 2023
The vast Amazon region is central to the global debate on creating a stable climate and maintaining biodiversity. But we cannot deal with sustainability in Amazonia if we do not confront the rural and urban realities in the region of poverty, violence, and the need for economic development. That is the message from Eduardo Brondizio, a Brazilian-born Anthropologist Professor at Indiana University, Bloomington, USA, who is the Volvo Environment Prize laureate in 2023.
