About the product

The world’s forest resources provide renewable raw materials and energy, maintain biological diversity, mitigate climate change, protect land and water resources, provide recreation facilities, improve air quality and help alleviate poverty. At the same time, forests are affected by fire, air pollution, pests and invasive species, and are the primary targets in many countries for agricultural and urban expansion. The data in this report, delivered by national correspondents and their networks of professionals, provides a holistic perspective on global forest resources, their management and uses.
