Deforestation in Bolivia

July 22 · Issue #1348 · View online
Daily Overview
Deforestation is visible in Santa Cruz, Bolivia immediately next to a relatively untouched section of rainforest. Deforestation in the country has primarily been driven by the expansion of mechanized agriculture and cattle ranching. Between 2001 and 2020, Bolivia lost more than 15 million acres (6.1 million hectares) of tree cover — an area twice the size of Belgium. More than 40% of this loss occurred between 2016 and 2020.
