This chapter focuses on the global relevance of the Amazon biome, the acceleration of regional integration and its impacts, and the discussions regarding the strategies to reconcile economic growth, the improvement of human welfare, environmental conservation, and reduction of anthropogenic global warming gas emissions in the region. Particular emphasis is given to the emerging advancements in scientific knowledge and technological innovations which can contribute both for the sustainable use and conservation of 82 percent of the remaining Brazilian Amazon biome and conversion of traditional production systems dependent on deforestation towards sustainable and integrated crop-livestock-forestry systems in the 18 percent of the areas already deforested.

Keywords:   Amazonia, sustainable development, global warming, technological innovation, deforestation, government intervention, conservation
