200 km2 of forest, about the size of the city of Essen, have been lost today
23,200 km2 of trees have already been cut down since the beginning of the year
By the end of this month, an area approximately the size of Rwanda will have been deforested
The purpose of this project is to make users aware of environmental issues and in particular the effects of deforestation at a global level and its impact on the environment, and on how we can do our part in counteracting the phenomenon.
The calculations of the rate of deforestation are based on FAO data on the average forest loss recorded in the period 2000-2010 (see data sources in the next section).
