Brazil unveils deforestation plan

Date : 26th September 2008, Source : BBC Link to News Story



The Brazilian government has pledged to end net deforestation by 2015. It is one of the key commitments in a draft climate change plan, which stops short of setting specific targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The plan - setting out how Brazil will help prevent climate change, and how it will adapt to it - was promised nearly a year ago by President Lula. But the environmental group Greenpeace criticised it for simply highlighting existing proposals. It said the draft did not explain how they would be brought into action.
