English: Deforestation in Amazonas

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Brazil holds about 60 percent of the Amazon, the largest tropical forest in the world. After some years of reduction, deforestation is on the rise again, increasing as much as 30 percent in 2019. What is driving deforestation? Is the Norway-sponsored Amazon Fund working? What are the main misconceptions about the region? And what methods can you as a journalist use to ensure that your reporting about what is really going on in the Amazon is truthful and independent?
