Over past decades, we have often heard that Brazil's deforestation crisis has been a serious threat to our environment and to all the wildlife that lives in the South American nation’s rainforests. The rate of deforestation has been of grave concern to environmentalists for many years, and it is true that the country lost almost 2.7 million hectares of forest cover in 2019 alone.
However, the tide may be beginning to turn, and reforestation in Brazil offers a big opportunity. Thousands of budding entrepreneurs, farmers and NGOs are now restoring forest land and degraded farms through the Alliance for the restoration of the Amazon and the Atlantic Forest Restoration Pact. Moreover, some landowners are also helping in supporting biodiverse, carbon-rich forests that grow back naturally. Others also help produce paper and timber, especially for the international market. In this blog, we will see in detail how Brazil's forests are being restored.
There are three ways through which restoration is taking place in Brazil.
Reliable, accurate and extensive data is essential to the fight for reforestation and nature protection. By allowing us to see the bigger picture, it empowers organisations, stakeholders and communities to make the best and most impactful decisions in the most cost-effective ways. Furthermore, it also helps show governments, financers, and the international community the importance and effectiveness of investing in the restoration of ecosystems. For now, this data, the observatory, and the diverse partnership behind it help in offering a clear-cut first step towards the restoration of Brazil’s forest cover.
