Good news for the environment comes from the Conference on Climate and Forests, a conference to be held these days in Oslo, Norway. Rich countries have decided to increase funding to combat deforestation.
The funds will be increased to $ 4 billion, which is 500 million more than what had been agreed at the Copenhagen summit on climate change that took place a few months ago. This increase in funding is to help the environment to increase tree planting and more.
Deforestation is the cutting of trees in a forest, an operation that if done excessively and without a plan to protect the environment and forests can make a lot of damage to the environment and humans. Among the negative effects of deforestation is desertification, erosion and landslides.
