Abstract

Recognizing the shared challenges to confronting climate change impacts, and opportunities for climate mitigation and sustainable rural development, an international
coalition of ten Amazonian governors signed the San Francisco Declaration: Commitment of Amazon Governors to take strong action against climate change and deforestation in their jurisdictions. This profile looks at the context, challenges, and opportunities for this cross-regional alliance.
