Saving the Shrinking Amazon: Can Lula Make a Difference? | The Take

In a recent episode of The Take, titled “Can Lula save the shrinking Amazon?”, the team delves into the important issue of deforestation in the Amazon rainforest and Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva’s pledge to end deforestation by 2030.

Since taking office, President Lula has made strides in addressing deforestation in the Amazon, with last year seeing a 50% decrease in forest loss compared to 2022. However, the clock is ticking and the world’s largest tropical rainforest remains at stake.

Journalist Constance Malleret explores whether President Lula will be able to fulfill his promise and save the Amazon from further destruction. With the future of the Amazon hanging in the balance, it is more important than ever for decisive action to be taken to protect this vital ecosystem.

The episode was produced by Marcos Bartolomé, Chloe K. Li, and Manahil Naveed, with Mohamed Zain Shafi Khan and host Malika Bilal. The Take production team includes a dedicated group of individuals working to bring important stories like this to light.

As the world watches and waits to see if President Lula can indeed save the shrinking Amazon, the urgency of the situation cannot be understated. The fate of the Amazon and its invaluable biodiversity lies in the hands of those in power, and the time to act is now.
