Abstract:Sustainably managed plantations essential Reducing forest loss and degradation is a global societal priority requiring immediate and concerted action. It is critical that we find ways to ensure that more of the world’s forests and plantations are sustainably managed and that forest products are used and reused wisely. When sustainably managed, forests generate ecosystems services that make life on earth possible such as fresh water and climate regulation. They also generate industrial fibre for a very wide range of everyday and essential products, from timber and paper to bioenergy, and economic development opportunities for local communities and commercial enterprises.
