Mato Grosso, Rondônia as well as Amazonas are the regions where most of the deforestation occurs in Brazil, due to agriculture, as well as constructions of dams, roads, and other infrastructure since the 'Forest Code' has been weakened.
Ecuador has witnessed a 22% decline in forest cover since 1990. Ecuador was originally largely forested, but today has about two-thirds of that forest cover remaining. The comparatively good news is that about 37% of that is a frontier forest.
Mexico’s huge agricultural network is unfortunately responsible for the loss of vital tropical forests. The avocado industry is wreaking havoc, thinning out the pine forests, affecting the atmosphere and wildlife. Monarch butterfly have massively decreased because of the appetite for avocados.
Benin didn't start with great amounts of forest cover - only about 16% of the land used to be forested. A high deforestation rate of 31% doesn't help preserve what remains. Less than 4% of those original forests remain, and none in a frontier forest state.
At one point about two-thirds of Ghana was covered with forest. Now, less than 10% of that forest cover remains and none as frontier forest. At a rate of decline since 1990 of 28%, that remaining forest doesn't stand a chance without the induction of better forestry practices.
Sudan has a beautiful landscape, covered in forest. Over 30% of the land is luscious greenery. At the moment, 500 miles of trees are cut down for cooking and heating. Large commercial companies which generate steam and electricity are also tapping into the biodiverse landscape.
