8th UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, Will Be the Keynote Speaker at The Amazon and New Economies International Conference

One of the greatest global leaders in the defense of sustainable development and protection of the environment, Ban Ki-moon confirms his presence as a keynote speaker at The Amazon and New Economies International Conference.

The meeting will be held in Belém, in the state of Pará, from August 30th to September 1st, by the Brazilian Institute of Mining (IBRAM), in partnership with the government of the state of Pará.

During his 10 years as Secretary General of the United Nations (UN), Ban Ki-moon dedicated himself to establishing international agreements that would guide the future of the planet. His legacy includes the creation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the signing of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the Minamata Convention on Mercury.

These three examples of international agreements are crucial to guide the future of one of the most important regions on the planet: the Amazon. The region is one of the most biodiverse in the world and plays a key role in regulating the global climate.

The International Conference aims to discuss the sustainable development of the Amazon region and the opportunities that arise with the transition to a low-carbon economy. To this end, it will bring together business leaders, government authorities, environmental specialists and civil society representatives to discuss best practices for the economic and social development of the Amazon. With the presence of Ban Ki-moon, the conference gains even more relevance and visibility. His experience and knowledge will be fundamental to discuss the challenges and opportunities of such an important region for the planet.
