Brazil is home to the largest rainforest in the world and has experienced record-breaking deforestation in recent years. As the largest beef and soy exporter globally, the majority of deforestation is related to agribusiness expansion.
Colombia is home to the fifth largest rainforest in the world after Peru. Deforestation, driven primarily by cattle farming, has soared following a peace agreement with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC).
Peru is home to the fourth largest tropical forest in the world. As palm oil production reaches its limits in Southeast Asia, other tropical countries, including Peru, have seen a dramatic increase in production.
