Deforestation is a problem in many countries worldwide; including Nigeria, Brazil, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Mexico, New Guinea and several others, the list is quite extensive.
Nigeria has the world’s highest rate of deforestation. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations reported this and said that between 2000 and 2005, the country lost 55.7 percent of its primary forests.
Deforestation within the Amazon Rain forest is one of the world’s most alarming examples of this. The Amazon Rain forest had lost nearly 500,000 square miles a year in the 1990s, mainly due to expanding agriculture including large industrial farming areas and massive clear cutting for grazing animals like cattle. In recent years however, much more has been done, both by Sovereign States and the international community to try to stop the spread of deforestation.
