Preserve Our Forests

Rep. Hoyer’s testimony on bill to address deforestation


Last week, Rep. Hoyer testified on his AMAZON21 legislation in front of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Hoyer’s AMAZON21 bill presents an opportunity to protect climate-critical forests, biodiversity and the health of local communities beyond the United States. As the second-highest emitter of carbon dioxide emissions in the world, it is our country’s responsibility to not only curb our own emissions and protect our own forests but to also leverage our wealth to fund carbon-mitigation programs in nations that may otherwise tolerate or encourage climate-critical forest loss to bolster their economies.
