TitleState of the World's Forests
2nd TitleSituation des forêts du monde; Situación de los Bosques del Mundo
DescriptionThe State of the World's Forests reports on the status of forests, recent major policy and institutional developments and key issues concerning the forest sector. It makes current, reliable and policy-relevant information widely available to facilitate informed discussion and decision-making with regard to the world's forests. The ninth biennial issue of State of the World's Forests, published in 2011, the International Year of Forests, considers the theme 'Changing pathways, changing lives: forests as multiple pathways to sustainable development'. It takes a holistic view of the multiple ways in which forests support livelihoods. The chapters assembled for this year's State of the World's Forests highlight four key areas that warrant greater attention: (1) regional trends on forest resources; (2) the development of sustainable forest industries; (3) climate change mitigation and adaptation; and (4) the local value of forests. Considered together, these themes provide insights on the true contribution of forests to the creation of sustainable livelihoods and alleviation of poverty.
