Resumen

GRANZIERA, Maria Luiza Machado  y  REI, Fernando. The Protection of Biomes and the International Commitments and the New Law Brazilian Forest. Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2013, n.40, pp.451-474. ISSN 0718-6851.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68512013000100014.

The Brazilian Forest Code, a national law that protects all kinds of vegetation, should contribute, in any sense, to the achievement of the objectives of the Conventions on Biological Diversity. Currently, the rapid expansion of the agricultural frontier over the forests, mainly in the Amazon Biome and the Cerrado, aims towards the cultivation of soya and sugar cane. These cultures increase economic development of Brazil besides being considered sources of renewable energy. Otherwise, the pressure for more room for agribusiness has impacted on the environment severely. As a consequence, the Brazilian Forest Code has been reviewed, to minimize the obligations concerning forest protection. The proposed changes might undermine the fulfillment of obligations assumed by Brazil in the Convention of Biological Diversity and in the Convention on Climate Change, since the deforestation destroys the biodiversity and generates greenhouse gases.

Palabras clave : Biomes; Biodiversity; Climate Change; Forest Law.
