Amazon fire: Indigenous communities under threat

Amazon’s Indigenous groups’ lives and livelihoods are at risk due to the fires caused by rampant development.

Developers clearing the Amazon rainforest for cattle rearing and soya production have started many of the fires now raging in Brazil.

The international community and European leaders have warned that the environmental crisis should be contained as soon as possible.

But it’s also threatening the survival of Indigenous communities living in remote areas who have few safeguards.
