I intend on applying systems dynamics modeling techniques to create a simulation which mimics the dynamic behavior of structures in the Brazilian economic sector of the Amazon region in order to better understand the cause of the problems there. It is my hope that this project sheds light on the given situation, and through its simulations, helps the reader understand Amazonia's problems, and create a medium through which further study and analysis could bring a solution to an ever growing socio-economic and environmental problem.
