Brazilian President Bolsonaro’s government has relaxed environmental laws for coastal forests that have been in place since 2002. This frees up a coastal area of ​​1.6 million hectares that can be exploited. Project developers, tourism and fishing in particular will reap the benefits.

Environmental organizations and the opposition are not satisfied with the relaxation of the laws. The mangrove forests are very important in the fight against global warming. Greenpeace again lashes out at Bolsonaro. “We cannot allow Bolsonaro to continue to put greed above the climate, biodiversity and life of indigenous peoples.”
