Legal Opinion: Brazil's Amazon Tribes Own Carbon Trading Rights

Date : 14th December 2009, Source : ENS



COPENHAGEN, Denmark, December 14, 2009 (ENS) - A tribe in the Brazilian Amazon region owns carbon trading rights in future global warming deals, finds a new legal opinion from one of the world's largest law firms released at the Copenhagen climate summit. Because the opinion should apply to other indigenous groups in Brazil it provides a path to preservation of vast areas of the rainforest say forest advocates. At least 40 percent of the world's remaining rainforest lies within Brazilian borders.
