Climate Change Disaster driven by deforestation hits the province of Salta in Argentina

Salta, a province in the North-West of Argentina, covering part of the Chaco plain, the Yunga rainforest and the Andes mountains, has traditionally been firmly under the grip of agribusiness. In this region, home to many of Argentina’s surving indigenous communities that still depend on these ecosystems, traditional monocultures included cotton and sugar cane, dominated by dictatorship related families.

However, deforestation has accelerated even further with the introduction of Monsanto’s RoundupReady soy from 1996, that according to the provincial parliament already covers 50% of the cultivated area. A new wave of destruction is now being staged by local politicians and international agribusiness alike.

Please write now to the Supreme Court of Argentina to stop deforestation in Salta
