A breath of oxygen for Amazon • Shortlink
A real miracle took place in the last decade, and just now the findings of the Brazil's operation can be shown.
According a Dan Nepstad's research, who comes from the Earth Innovation Institute (USA), the Amazon's deforestation is reduced of 70%, and this brillant results is being got throught three steps.
In the first one ( untill 2004), a law tried to forced farmers and growers to convert into a reserve, about 80% of their land. This law didn't have so much success, therefore, during the second step ( 2005-2009), Brazil increased the police controls, reduction of soy cultivation and developed a political campaign for the boycott of companies responsible of deforestation.
The last phase ( since 2009), consists on a financial campaign for growers which live in the most ruined areas in the Amazon.
