Abstract: Roughly half of the deforestation that was avoided in Brazil's Amazon region from 2005-2009 was the result of governmental policies, according to a report released March 21 by the Climate Policy Initiative. Meanwhile, "billions" of investment dollars are on hold as Brazil considers a proposal governing land purchases, nearly two years after the country banned foreign investors from buying large tracts of land, the Financial Times reported. Meanwhile, the alarming rate of loss of Paraguay's Chaco Forest has also recently made headlines. What role should the state play in regulating land usage? How can Latin American governments balance preservation of unique environmental systems with economic growth?
