Desflorestação da Amazónia diminui um terço em 2023
July 7, 2023 -
A desflorestação na Amazónia brasileira caiu 34% nos primeiros seis
meses de mandato do Presidente Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva em comparação com o mesmo período de 2022 com o Presidente Jair Bolsonaro.
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.
