G20 in Manaus 

Manaus will host, between June 17th and 19th, 2024, the meeting of the G20 Bioeconomy Initiative. This is the first G20 event held in the capital of Amazonas. In the same week, on June 19th and 21st, the meeting of the G20 Working Group on Climate and Environmental Sustainability takes place, both events held at the Vasco Vasques Convention Center. 

The G20, which brings together the largest economies in the world (19 countries, in addition to the African Union and the European Union), has been under the presidency of Brazil since December 1, 2023. This is the first time that the topic of bioeconomy has been discussed multilaterally, an initiative proposed by the Brazilian presidency at the G20. The meeting in Manaus focuses on the sustainable use of biodiversity for the bioeconomy, with national and international participants discussing strategies for the conservation, preservation and recovery of biodiversity. 

G20 Interfaith Forum 

In parallel, Manaus also hosts the G20 Interreligious Forum Meeting Cycle, addressing the theme 'Environment, Sustainable Development and Religious Engagement: Contributions to the G20'. André Vianna, technical director of Idesam, participates in the debate 'Creating value and prosperity and regenerating nature: religious dynamics and social, biological and economic factors'. This workshop discusses paths to prosperity with a focus on food security, climate justice and forest preservation, highlighting the role of religious beliefs and institutions in regenerating nature. 

The first session will be moderated by Romanna Remor, President of the Board of Directors of the Roble del Sur Foundation, and will feature panelists such as Patrícia Cota Gomes, Deputy Director of Imaflora; André Viana, Technical Director of Idesam; Ernesto Souza, agroforestry farmer residing in the Uatumã Sustainable Development Reserve (RDS); and Paulo Oliveira, Owner of Cocar&Co.
