Map of Conflict – a decade of violence and land injustice in Brazil’s Legal Amazon
The Legal Amazon
The Map of Conflict focuses on Brazil’s ‘Legal Amazon’ region, an area covering over five million square kilometres, two-thirds of the country. This includes the states of Amazonas, Roraima, Rondônia, Pará, Amapá, Acre, Tocantins, Mato Grosso, and part of Maranhão. The Legal Amazon was the location of 55% of land conflicts in Brazil between 2011 and 2020.
