Published: 10 January 2019

"Brazil's new president, Bolsonaro, has promised his voters to deforest much of the Amazon to increase Brazil's agricultural and meat production."

"The consequences will be devastating for biodiversity, indigenous peoples and the climate. Sweden can counteract the negative consequences through five simple but powerful actions."

This writes several debaters, including Professor Tuija Hilding-Rydevik, SLU, Director of the Center for Biodiversity, in an article on Svenska Dagbladet's debate page.
