Brazil environment chief sworn in

Date : 28th May 2008, Source : BBC Link to News Story



Brazil's new environment minister has been sworn in amid concern among environmentalists over whether he will be able to curb Amazon deforestation. Carlos Minc has taken over from Marina Silva, who resigned in frustration at the government's environment policies. He has said he wants to maintain the priorities of his predecessor. But correspondents say he faces many competing interests, with pressure to provide economic opportunities for the Amazon region's 25m people.
