    Brazil seeking more funds from rich countries to protect the Amazon rainforest

    Salles said Brazil will seek more resources to enact its environmental policies and would ask for additional funding at the COP25 UN climate meeting in Madrid

    Brazil’s plans for environmental protection remain unchanged even as deforestation skyrockets, but Environment Minister Ricardo Salles said the country was looking for more money to implement those plans. Salles largely repeated previously announced plans to bring more development, economic zoning and improved enforcement of environmental laws to the Amazon rainforest region, where deforestation has surged to its highest point in 11 years.
