Levitsky comments on deforestation in the Amazon

December 10, 2021 BBC Brasil

Melvyn Levitsky commented on the mismatch between Brazil’s promises at COP-26 and actual deforestation figures released a few days after the event. 

​​"It's embarrassing for Brazil to have these numbers showing up. Did they hide them during the COP? I suppose Brazil is not happy with the fact that it has gone further back in the Amazon....the numbers are there and this will continue to be a problem for Brazil with the United States and Europe," Levitsky said.
