Deforestation alerts in the Amazon set a record in October, says Inpe

"In November the area of alerts detected by Deter was 877 km², a 5% increase over 2020 and a record in the historical series. At COP26, taking place in Glasgow, Scotland, Brazil ignored the devastation records and promised to end illegal deforestation by 2028." By Mariana Garcia (G1)

 

Deforestation alerts in the Amazon set a record in October, says Inpe

"Two days after the Minister of the Environment stated at COP26 that the "green future of Brazil has already begun," data show that the Legal Amazon had an area of 877 km² under deforestation alert, a 5% increase compared to 2020 and a record for the month in the history series. The numbers were released by the Space Research Institute (Inpe) this Friday (12)."
