Mais de 100 países comprometem-se a acabar com desflorestação
November 1, 2021 -
Mais de 100 países, envolvendo 85% das florestas do mundo,
comprometeram-se a deter e reverter a desflorestação até 2030 no
primeiro grande compromisso da cimeira climática COP26.
Britain hailed the commitment by over 100 countries to end deforestation as the first big achievement of the conference in the Scottish city of Glasgow, known as COP26 – but experts noted such promises have been made and broken before.
Signatories include the top five forested countries – Russia, Canada, U.S., China, and Brazil – where Amazon deforestation soared to 12-year high in 2020 under President Jair Bolsonaro.
More than $19 billion in public and private funds have been pledged toward the plan.
About 130 world leaders are in Glasgow for what host Britain says is the last realistic chance to keep global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels – the goal the world set in Paris six years ago.
