Amazon is one of the planet regions most affected by global climate change, because variations in the Ecuador line cause events like floods, droughts and storms that directly affect the environment and the local population. In seasonal periods of low rainfall and high air temperatures, river water levels in the Amazon basin may become low for navigation, leaving communities isolated. The droughts also cause fires that alter the ecological balance in the Amazon Forest, which holds 12% of the world's biodiversity.
