Abholzungen im Amazonas Regenwald in 2023 um ein Drittel gefallen

By Jordi Bou

July 7, 2023 - Abholzungen in Brasiliens Amazonas Regenwald sind 2023, in den ersten sechs Monaten der Präsidentschaft von Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva um 34% gegenüber der gleichen Periode 2022 unter Präsident Jair Bolsonaro, zurückgegangen, meldet die Regierung.

Data produced by Brazil’s national space research agency (Inpe) indicated that the rainforest shrank by 2,649 sq km this January-June, down from 3,988 sq km in those six months last year under President Bolsonaro.

Lula, 77, took office in January promising to end deforestation by 2030, after surging destruction under his predecessor, Jair Bolsonaro, who had slashed environmental protection efforts.

The Amazon is the largest rainforest in the world, and 60% of it is in Brazil.
