The measure seeks to strengthen Norway's environmental policies, bringing more enforcement throughout the national territory.

It is not new that topics such as global warming and deforestation are present in schools, in political debates and in several other contexts, and it is no wonder: ignoring these issues means giving up one of the greatest riches we have, and it is no wonder that at banning the cutting of trees the government of Norway made world news.

The measure was adopted to eliminate deforestation throughout the country, that is: it applies to literally the entire Norwegian territory. In addition, it has also become prohibited for citizens to purchase products that during their manufacturing process have contributed to the cutting of trees anywhere in the world.

From a tourist point of view, knowing that there is no more deforestation in Norway, we can expect increasingly beautiful landscapes and the certainty of visiting a country that fulfills its role in relation to the environment, but this news is not restricted to that.

The challenges faced by the Norwegian government in combating deforestation

The end of cutting down trees in Norway and the ban on the acquisition and sale of products linked to deforestation, even if indirectly, raises another issue as important as: the relationship with products such as meat and soy, known worldwide for being some of the biggest responsible for this cut all over the world.

The devastation of giant areas for planting, logging and farming led to the creation of reforestation areas, but this is far from being a sufficient solution, especially when there is an inevitable and constant demand for the aforementioned products, which leads to the need for greater awareness on the part of all people in relation to what they consume.

In an ideal world, we would all seek to know where what we eat comes from, for example, and we would discard everything that had caused even the felling of a single tree. With that, production would be weakened and, consequently, the industry behind it would gradually lose strength, all without the intervention of any government, but how to do it when not even this government takes the first step or supports causes related to the environment?

The Norwegian government's decision to ban the cutting of trees throughout its territory, for example, came into effect just two years after the UN Climate Summit in 2014. The United Kingdom and Germany, also participating, also committed to adopting actions to reduce deforestation, but at least so far they have not taken any really effective measures. With this, Norway is the first country to actually fight logging.

The consequences of this decision and what else can be done

Decisions like the one taken by the Norwegian government directly reflect on everyone's quality of life and on the reduction of damage caused by the so-called greenhouse effect, which is why it is so important that they are adopted by other countries.

Even those who have not committed in any way can, for example, give greater freedom to the action of indigenous communities, promote environmental inspections in places that are difficult to access, and in the long term, educate to change the culture of the consumer society: the forest it is more profitable standing.

Learning about the importance of preserving these natural patrimonies, such as native forests, springs, rivers and slopes, has become everyone's obligation, but only with effective government actions like this can we achieve solid results.

In other words: deforestation is a really serious matter, no matter from which side it is seen, and if more countries are inspired by the Norwegian government to rethink their policies in relation to the environment, in a short time it will be possible to minimize the impacts caused and improve, and a lot, a scenario that until then tends to get worse and worse.
