Bridging Divides for Conservation in the Amazon: Digital Technologies & The Calha Norte Portal

Hannah Mabel Reardon

McGill University, Canada

This short paper discusses the applications of digital tools for overcoming challenges to conservation in the Amazon. Especially, it discusses the role of digital technologies in bridging communication divides and information-sharing for policymakers, researchers, environmentalists, local communities and institutional bodies for better conservation policy in the Calha Norte region, home to the largest mosaic of protected areas in the world. It presents the author's personal project and website, the Calha Norte Portal, as an example of potential uses for digital communication platforms.
