After Germany, Norway has also ceased its financial support for the Amazon Fund. The Scandinavian country, which has invested more than $ 1 billion in this forestry fund over the past decade, is responding to rising deforestation in the Amazon under Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro. The governors of the affected states now want to save the fund by negotiating no longer with Bolsonaro's central government, but directly with European donors.
