Deforestation of Africa
For the past few centuries, deforestation and loss of habitat has been shaking the environment and economy of African countries. People have been chopping down trees at a constant rate for decades. Much of the rainforest have been destroyed, causing inhabitants to move out, industries to increase, and farming land to decrease. There has also been a deep decrease in resources, especially all the rare species in Madagascar. Due to deforestation, the population has been dominated.
What else do we know?
The deforestation that is happening in Congo and Madagascar has been going on for approximately 4 centuries and has affected about 70% of Africa's rainforest.
Current State of the Issue
The people are cutting down tree's because, population growth has 'forced' people to cut down tree's for homes, and farms are cutting down tree's for more land. Also illegal timber sales are apart of what's happening
Laws have been put in place to slow the rate of deforestation, and heavy taxes have been placed on anyone who breaks these laws.
What role does
the UN have in this
