Climate Change Commissions

A young woman arranges clothes on the clothesline of her house, a floating one located on the banks of the Rio Negro on the edge of the village of Cacau Pirêra, in Iranduba, Amazonas, Brazil, on April 6, 2021. Although floating, many houses of this type do not have the adequate structure to face the period of heavy rains in the Amazon, which can cause them to sink. The state of Amazonas is expecting a record high of its rivers. The Civil Defense has been monitoring all river channels in the state: Juruá, Purus, Solimões, Negro, Madeira and Amazonas.
