Rich should help Amazon forests, summit says

Date : 27th November 2009, Source : BBC Link to News Story



Nine nations in the Amazon region have called on rich countries to provide poorer nations with the funds to preserve forests. The nations, meeting in Manaus, Brazil, also discussed supporting a 40% reduction in global emissions by 2020. The meeting comes shortly before the key global summit on climate change in Copenhagen, Denmark. The Amazon nations agreed on broad principles rather than concrete steps, correspondents said. Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva chaired the meeting of delegates from Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, Venezuela and Surinam, with French President Nicolas Sarkozy representing French Guiana.
