In French Guiana, gold mining accused of role in destroying Amazon rainforest

As the UN COP25 climate change conference opens in Madrid, we focus on the issue of deforestation. The Amazon rainforest – a major climate regulator – is under immense strain from logging, mining and farming activities. We take you to France’s part of the Amazon, in French Guiana. Gold mining – by big companies and small extractors but also thousands of illegal miners – is accused of playing a role in destroying the forest there. Our colleagues from France 2 report, with FRANCE 24’s Malcolm Surer.
