How much would it cost to end Amazon deforestation?

Date : 27th January 2008, Source : Mongabay



With Brazil last week announcing a significant jump in Amazon deforestation during the second half of 2007, the question emerges, how much would it cost to end the destruction of Earth's largest rainforest? According to estimates by the Woods Hole Research Institute (WHRC) reducing deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon to nearly zero within a decade would cost $100 million to $600 million per year under a program involving carbon credits for forest conservation (REDD).
