On 27 July 2020 CNN reported:
Costa Rica is the first tropical country to have stopped -- and subsequently reversed -- deforestation. Can the rest of the world follow its lead? In the 1940s, 75 percent of Costa Rica was cloaked in lush rainforests. Then the loggers arrived, chainsaws in hand, and cleared the land to grow crops and raise livestock. While there is ongoing debate about the extent of reduction, it is thought that between a half and a third of forest cover had been destroyed by 1987. Today almost 60 percent of the land is once again forest. Costa Rica's success is underscored by economics. It paired its ban on deforestation with the introduction of PES, which pays farmers to protect watersheds, conserve biodiversity or capture carbon dioxide.
