Deforestation in Colombia during 2022 is forecast to have fallen by up to 10% versus the previous year

Deforestation in Colombia during 2022 is forecast to have fallen by up to 10% versus the previous year, Environment Minister Susana Muhamad said on Tuesday, citing significant decreases in the country's Amazon.
The South American country is one of the world's most biodiverse, with swathes of its continental territory covered by Amazon rainforest, which scientists say is vital to curbing catastrophic climate change, because of the vast amounts of greenhouse gases it absorbs.
Deforestation in Colombia in 2021 rose 1.5% versus the previous year to 1,741 square kilometers (430,218 acres), representing an area twice the size of New York City.

            Halting deforestation would avoid direct emissions from the lost biomass as well as maintain the capacity of forests to absorb carbon and support resilience and sustainable livelihoods

            We continue to discourage deforestation but encourage reforestation and afforestation to help in sequestering carbon.
