Seven million hectares of forests have been lost in Argentina over the past 20 years

Between 1998 and 2006, the deforested surface of Argentina was of almost 3,000 hectares –the equivalent of 250,000 hectares a year or one hectare every two minutes.
A forest law was passed in march of 2007, despite opposition by some lawmakers from the largely deforested northern provinces.
The funds assigned by the Argentinian Congress for forest protection in 2016 are 23 times less than what is established by the national forestry norm.

GR:  Drought here, harvest there and the forests disappear.
