JUNE 22 | 1.30 and 6.30 pm | ONLINE via ZOOM.
Deforestation (or deforestation) is the process of loss of forest cover, and human activities and practices are currently the main drivers of this, especially through fires (burning) and the clearing of large areas of forest. Deforestation causes negative impacts to the environment, both locally and globally, with emphasis on the loss of biodiversity and on the increase in the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. In this sense, the constant devastation of tropical forests has been a cause of great concern in the international scenario due to the worsening of the climate crisis, with special emphasis on what has been happening in the largest tropical forest in the world. In this session we will address general issues related to deforestation and, more specifically, discuss the scenario of the Brazilian Amazon: main causes of loss of forest cover and actors involved, as well as public policies at different levels of government for forest preservation. Given the concern of local governments to preserve and maintain forest stocks in different areas of the globe, we will also address how the concept of paradiplomacy can be used as an important ally in combating climate change.
