Destruction of the world's largest tropical forest reached its second-highest level on record last year, or 10,088 square miles (26,130 sq km), an area larger than the U.S. state of New Jersey, according to government figures. The Amazon is home to up to 30 percent of the planet's animal and plant species. REUTERS/Bruno Domingos BD/KS

A worker carries a trunk at a wood market on the outskirts of Chengde, in north China's Hebei province, April 5, 2007. China's economic boom has driven demand for wood and the country has adopted a tree planting policy, not only to reduce its reliance on imported timber, but also for soil protection, especially in areas near the Gobi desert, said Wulf Killmann, a forestry expert at the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).

at the village of Liang Mianjing, about 50 kilometres (31 miles) north
of Xulun Hobot Qagan Qi, in Inner Mongolia, April 13, 2002. China is
bracing itself for more sand storms that affected nearly 130 million
people. The latest sand storm during last month affected 1.4 million sq
km in eight Chinese provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions
including Beijing. The problem has worsened in the past 20 years due to
massive deforestation and increased drought. REUTERS/Guang Niu

One year after President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva announced a plan of action against the destruction of the Amazon jungle, environmentalists say he has done more to promote dams, roads and farming than halt destruction of the world's largest rainforest, home to up to 30 percent of the world's plant and animal species.

Brazilian soybean farmers expect the rutted, muddy road through the Amazon will turn into a highway of gold for them thanks to plans to pave it over the next three years, but environmentalists fear the project will hasten the region's deforestation.
