Brazil's Water Cycle

Effects of Deforestation on the Water Supply

The trees of the Amazon rainforest are critical to Brazil’s water supply. Through the process of transpiration, trees ensure water enters our atmosphere and in turn produces clouds and rain.

Without trees, transpiration doesn’t happen, which means little to no rain. Brazil is feeling the effects of deforestation on its water supply, especially in Sao Paolo where there are ration mandates that leave residents with access to water only two days a week.
