Low-carbon farming takes root in Brazil’s Amazon.
Manoel Jose Leite, a small-scale organic farmer, is set to pioneer low-carbon agriculture in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest, which for decades has been destroyed by expanding agribusiness.
Finding the right balance between agriculture and environmental protection will be one of the major challenges on the agenda of the United Nations conference on sustainable development, which started last Wednesday. (The ministerial segment of the summit starts tomorrow.)
The issue is particularly pressing for leading grain exporter Brazil, 40% of whose huge territory is covered by the Amazon rainforest.
