Technical Memo from the IPAM
 
The Brazilian Amazon is still on fire. The 2019 burning season, which captured the attention of Brazil and the world in recent weeks, is not over yet. Government action at the federal and state levels in the fight against wildfires is still essential, just as it is essential to curb the source that feeds it: deforestation. Failing immediate action, the whole region will continue to suffer from high numbers of outbreaks from September on.
