State of the World's Forests 2001  

State of the World's Forests 2001

Almost ten years ago in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, an international commitment was made at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) to work towards the sustainable management, conservation and development of all types of forests. UNCED, also referred to as the Rio Conference, served to catalyse debate and action on forests - redefining for what, and for whom, forests are managed; developing a vision of sustainable forest management as well as strengthening commitment to its implementation and practice; and forging new and untraditional alliances as a means of achieving common goals in forestry., The State of the World's Forests 2001 highlights significant developments related to forests, many of which can be traced back to UNCED or even before, while others are driven by more recent economic, social or political trends and events. While the route to sustainable forest management is challenging and progress is not as rapid as some might wish, the path is now clearer and we are indeed moving ahead., ==================================================, See attached fiel for Abstract, and , Click SEE FULLTEXT to dowload full document,
