Way to Cancun: Global Forest Coalition Report - Getting to the Roots

Underlying Causes of Deforestation and Forest Degradation, and Drivers of Forest Restoration

29.11.2010 |WECF news




The report Getting to the Roots: Underlying Causes of Deforestation and Forest Degradation, and Drivers of Forest Restoration will be launched at a press conference at the UN Climate Talks in Cancun, Mexico, Wednesday December 1. The report reveals that measures to address deforestation – like REDD – are likely to fail because they do not address the real underlying causes of forest loss, like an excessive demand for wood.

We hope that this report will help to inspire and focus policy debates about one of the most important challenges of our time: halting deforestation and forest degradation and restoring our forests. We hope it will change the course of the REDD debate, by prompting all involved in negotiations and related discussions to reconsider just what really needs to be done to protect and restore the world’s forests.

The report can be downloaded at :
