Shoot: Aerial View of Dams in Tapajós Region in the Amazon

GP0STQ15V
Tapajós river basin, next to Sawré Muybu indigenous land, is home to the Munduruku people, Pará state, Brazil. The dams of Teles Pires and São Manoel are part of the the Brazilian government plan to build 43 dams in the region. The largest planned dam, São Luiz do Tapajós, will impact the life of indigenous peoples and riverside communities. Dams like these threaten the fragile biome of the Amazon, where rivers are fundamental to regeneration and distribution of plant species and the survival of local flora. Renewable energy, such as solar and wind, holds the key to Brazil’s energy future.

O rio Tapajós, na região da Terra Indígena Sawré Muybu, é casa do povo Munduruku, no Pará. As barragens de Teles Pires and São Manoel são parte do plano do governo brasileiro que planeja construir 43 hidrelétricas na bacia do Tapajós. A maior delas, São Luiz do Tapajós, terá impacto sobre a vida dos povos indígenas e comunidades ribeirinhas. Barragens como essas ameaçam o frágil bioma da Amazônia, onde os rios são fundamentais para a regeneração e distribuição de espécies vegetais e a sobrevivência da flora local. Energias renováveis, como solar e eólica, detêm a chave para o futuro energético do Brasil.
