How can Canada and the world
help decrease deforestation in the Amazon while allowing the world to still use its resources?
Why is it important for Canada to be involved?
It is important for Canada to be involved because Canada is a developed country and in some cases a world leader. We can help people in the world learn to use renewable resources. Canada uses many resources that come from other countries because the product might be cheaper. One of the countries is Brazil. In Brazil the wood they sell is not just from the Amazon. Canadian
citizens can also encourage others to use renewable resources.
Canada can help decrease deforestation in the Amazon while allowing the world to have its resources in a couple of ways.
-Canada can help by finding other sources of food other than beef, because in Brazil they are burning the trees to make land for cattle.
- Also Canada can help encourage people to eat less red meat . If we can do that than maybe cattle won't be worth such high prices and the trees wont be burnt down for land.
-Canada can also help educate people on how important forests really are, and the dangers of deforestation.
