Narco-deforestation

So-called "narco-deforestation" is threatening forests in Central America as drug traffickers buy and deforest large areas to launder money.

Cocaine trafficking is responsible for the disappearance of millions of hectares of tropical forest in Central America, threatening the very survival of local communities and that of biodiversity. This is what has been defined “narco-deforestation”.
