Amazon 'needs economic chances'

Date : 15th May 2008, Source : BBC Link to News Story



The Brazilian minister in charge of managing the Amazon rainforest has said deforestation can only be halted if people are given economic chances. Planning minister Roberto Mangabeira Unger told the BBC there was a middle way between preserving the Amazon as a sanctuary and "predatory" exploitation. Meanwhile, a founder of Brazil's Green Party, Carlos Minc, has been named as the country's new environment minister. He succeeds Marina Silva, who resigned after becoming isolated over policy.
