A new, interactive database that maps deforestation around the world is now online. The website, Global Forest Watch, shows deforestation around the world in high resolution and with frequent updates. It is a collaboration between Google, governments and environmentalists with the aim of ramping up enforcement against a major contributor to climate change. RFI spoke to Nigel Sizer, the director of the Global Forest Initiative, the organisation behind this project.
