Increased number of extinct, endangered species in South America, especially plants in Brazil and Equator, impose question of importance of Amazon forest. Its declining trend requires constant attention not just from population in Brazil, but as well as in region and world which have their interest in direct/ indirect monetary and non-monetary values. GDP decline can further deteriorate forest areas so it is of importance to diversify and strengthen energy inputs and work on different renewable strategies. Many projects are possible but all should rely on social justice, protecting women, low income groups by strategies of small loans, agriculture land given to small groups, guaranteed market, and help through education. Paper proposes projects of algae, new approach in tourism, and solar transport opportunities.
