The deforestation and burning of the Amazon forests has expanded significantly with president Bolsonaro – with strong reactions internationally and domestically. How effective is the protection of rainforests and indigenous peoples provided by Brazilian legislation and by the judicial and administrative institutions at the central and regional levels? Can the adverse development be prevented by other actors? What is the legal and political impact of the information on increasing fires provided by the Brazil National Institute for Space Research (INPE) – and what does it say?
