Reuters's Ange Adihe Kasongo is reporting on some good news - countries with major rainforests are partnering together to save them.
Countries home to the world's three major rainforests—Amazon, Congo basin, and Southeast Asia forests—have agreed to collaborate to combat deforestation and conserve biodiversity, as discussed during the Congo Republic-hosted Three Basins summit. Though they have recognized the need for a unified effort and have laid out a seven-point plan, they have not established a concrete alliance. The urgency for action is highlighted by the fact that these basins hold two-thirds of Earth's biodiversity, and deforestation rates rose by 4% in 2022. Concurrently, the Congo Republic formalized a partnership with the European Union to enhance forest conservation by 2030. The World Wildlife Fund emphasized that further efforts are necessary for substantial action against deforestation.
