The year of 2015 marked the arrival of a critical water crisis in Brazil. Due to the drastic deforestation of the Amazon and Cerrado, it has stopped raining in the Southeast of Brazil! Martijn Van Rooij, former director at Citi Bank Brazil, is aware of that situation and supports the BJF. The video below was recorded on the dry bottom of one of São Paulo’s largest water reservoirs.
Projects such as the Araguaia Biodiversity Corridor are a sustainable answer to this crisis. By creating this Corridor, one of the largest South-American reforestation projects, we will help to recover the climatic role of rainforests in Brazil as well as halt biodiversity erosion.
