Global Amazon in Brasil

with one comment

Good morning my friends

Today is Monday and we are here again…

The Amazon Rainforest is a moist broadleaf forest in the Amazon Basin of South America.

Brazil holds about one-third of the world’s remaining rainforests, including a majority of the Amazon rainforest.

In many tropical countries, the majority of deforestation results from the actions of poor subsistence cultivators. However, in Brazil only about one-third of recent deforestation can be linked to cultivators.

A large portion of deforestation in Brazil can be attributed to land clearing for pastureland by commercial and speculative interests, misguided government policies, inappropriate World Bank projects, and commercial exploitation of forest resources.

Lula da Silva, Brazilian president, has launched an international fund to finance conservation and sustainable development in the Amazon.

The fund will support forest conversation, scientific research and sustainable development projects such as forestry management or developing drugs from plants.

Waiting that the countries take conscience the Amazon’s importance and not that the most important will be “funds in the pocket”…

 Nice Monday…
