Brighter Green is remotely participating with Global Forest Coalition and other partner organizations at the June 2014 Bonn Climate Change Conference.
In addition to sharing our materials documenting deforestation in Latin America, our partners at the conference are holding a side event at the conference on Thursday June 12. Information about the event can be found in this flyer.
Impacts of Unsustainable Livestock Production in Paraguay, launched in May, highlights how both cattle ranching and the production of soy as feedstock for the intensive livestock industry are causing devastating impacts on forests, biodiversity and Indigenous Peoples in Paraguay.
Redirection of Perverse Incentives for Unsustainable Livestock Production: Guidance for the Implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity and its Strategic Plan, highlights how this destructive industry continues to benefit from generous subsidies and other forms of government support, both in the importing and in the exporting countries of beef and soy.
