AAA welcomes Brazilian Forestry Ministry's Rainforest Survey

AAA, has welcomed news that the Brazilian Forestry Ministry is planning to carry out a detailed survey of the Amazon rainforest.

Boston, MA, February 08, 2013 - Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA), has welcomed news that the Brazilian Forestry Ministry is planning to carry out a detailed survey of the Amazon rainforest.

AAA, the alternative investment advocacy group, believes that the survey – which will cost around $33 million to complete – will enable the government to fulfil their plans to decrease deforestation in the rainforest. In 2009, the Brazilian government pledged to decrease the rate of deforestation by 80 per cent by 2020.

Carrying out the in-depth inventory of the rainforest will help the ministry to keep on top of tree numbers and species and work towards achieving their sustainable goals.

Brazilian Forestry Minister, Antonio Carlos Hummel, told the publication, “We are going to come to know the rainforest from within.”

AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson, explained that the detailed survey will be the first to be carried out in the Amazon for more than 30 years, making it a particularly important piece of research. It will take between three and four years to complete and will see data relating to soils, biodiversity and tree species present in the rainforest being collected.

“The survey is an incredibly important piece of research that will enable Brazil's Forestry Ministry to gain a far greater and more detailed understanding of the rainforest's modern day characteristics. The research will be invaluable in helping the Ministry to achieve its goals of lowering deforestation and ensuring a sustainable future,” Mr Johnson went on to say.

Izabella Teixeira, Environment Minister, also spoke of the importance of the survey, saying, “In international debates about climate change, for example, we will know how much forest we have and what state it is in [...], we'll discover species, and gain knowledge about species becoming extinct, as well as information about the distribution of the forest and its potential economic use.”
