The Central African Forests Commission was created in It is the political and technical body for orientation, coordination and decision making with respect to conservation and sustainable management of forest ecosystems in Central Africa. It harmonises and coordinates the forestry and environmental policies of its member states.

Almost 40% of the vast Congo Basin forest in central Africa has been allocated for timber concessions. By contrast, protected areas represent less than 12% of the remaining forests in the region and are therefore often too small or fragmented to support wide ranging species like the forest elephant and western lowland gorilla.
Global Perspectives on Sustainable Forest Management 4 al., ). The Russian Federation, Brazil, Canada, the United States of America and China were the most forest rich countries accounting to 53 per cent of the total forest area of the globe. Another 64 countries having a combined population of two billions was reported to. Review. Globally, forests cover nearly one third of the land area and contain over 80% of terrestrial biodiversity .The income of more than billion people depends on forests and sustainable management of forests can contribute to sustainable development, poverty eradication and the achievement of internationally agreed development goals [1,2].

The basis of the work developed by FOREST EUROPE has been a common understanding of what sustainable forest management encompasses. The term was defined in in the Helsinki resolution H1 as: “the stewardship and use of forests and forest lands in a way, and at a rate, that maintains their biodiversity, productivity, regeneration capacity, vitality and their.
forest biodiversity in a sustainable way, and with clear social and economic benefits for the poor, is the purpose of this guide.
The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) addresses the conservation and sustainable use of forest biodiversity through a comprehensive programme of work, adopted in and revised in (see page 39). The evolution of forest legislation in the European Countries indicates that understanding of how natural resources are to be used in a sustainable manner depends on a given economic and social context.
The meaning of sustainable forestry is determined by local circumstances and their significance has considerably changed over time. of sustainable forest management and the multifunctional role of forests. In line with the Forests and conservation of nature Forests and conservation issues 24 The main principles for management 25 Central and Eastern European Countries COP: Conference of the Parties CRAFT: Co-operative research projects for small.
A decade ago, the World Bank Group shifted its approach in the forest sector by putting poverty alleviation and sustainable economic development on equal footing with conservation.
It was a bold move given the risks and trade-offs involved in balancing these three aims. A decade into its implementation IEG evaluated the progress made and results of this approach.
This has been paralleled by international initiatives by countries with comparable forest situations: timber-producing countries in the humid tropics under the auspices of the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO); European countries as part of the follow-up to the Ministerial Conferences on the Protection of Forests in Europe, held.
Background to Sustainable Forest Management in the UK The UK is committed to implementing the CBD, the Forest Principles agreed at the Earth Summit and the Helsinki Guidelines and subsequent pan-European criteria and indicators.
Sustainable forestry policies and practices in the UK are set out in the UK Forestry Standard (FC ). whole represent 27 percent ( million ha) of the total EU forest area.
The mountain forest cover in Central and Eastern European countries (CEECs) is evaluated to some 23 million ha, excluding the Russian Federation, where forests are found over 75 million ha (EOMF, ).
EUROPEAN TARGETS FOR FORESTS AND LAUNCHING NEGOTIATIONS FOR A LEGALLY BINDING AGREEMENT. The 6 th FOREST EUROPE Ministerial Conference on the Protection of Forests in Europe was convened on June in Oslo, Norway.
At the Conference, ministers responsible for forests in Europe adopted European Targets for the protection and sustainable management of forests. In the past two decades (), forest density has increased globally while forest extent has slightly decreased by % per year in and by % in Overall, forest density and extent has increased in high income countries and generally declined in low income countries.
Related to forest is. Forest conservation is the practice of planting and maintaining forested areas for the benefit and sustainability of future generations.
The conservation of forest also stands & aims at a quick. Forests used to constitute the dominant natural vegetation in most of Europe, covering up to 80 % of the land surface.
However, the current extent and condition of forest ecosystems are the result of the process of human appropriation (domestication), which started more than years ago. By the end of the 17th century, more than half of Europe’s original forest.
IUCN’s forest work tackles the role of trees and forests in building resilience to climate change in several ways: Combatting deforestation and forest degradation in areas of high biodiversity and cultural significance, such as primary forests and World Heritage sites.
This helps conserve the benefits that people and societies get from forests, including forest carbon stocks and. Deforestation and forest degradation in the tropics is a major source of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
The tropics also harbour more than half the world's threatened species, raising the possibility that reducing GHG emissions by curtailing tropical deforestation could provide substantial co-benefits for biodiversity conservation.
Here we explore the. Support for community actions for forest conservation and sustainable use to increase non-timber goods production, energy efficiency related to biomass Actions to limit the trade in illegal timber, Support for the identification and development of innovative financing schemes for sustainable management of ecosystem services.
The Conservation of Biodiversity and Sustainable Land Management in the Atlantic Forest of Eastern Paraguay project, commonly referred to as the Paraguay Biodiversity Project, was designed to serve as Paraguay’s first conservation model to use a landscape management approach based on a biodiversity corridor to support the restoration of the.
Sustainable Forest Management Policies in Canada ; Canada is the second largest country in the world with forest or other wooded land making up 40% of its million hectares. Canada’s forest cover represents 30% of the world’s forest and 9% of the world’s overall forest cover. SANTIAGO/WASHINGTON, Decem — Chile has signed an agreement with the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF), a global partnership housed at the World Bank, unlocking up to $26 million to increase carbon sequestration and reduce emissions from is the first Latin American country to reach this milestone deal that will run.
Sustainable multifunctional management is at the core of the European Union’s (EU) forest policy (EC, a; Bouwma et al., ), which oversees million km 2 of forest area, representing 3% of the world’s forests, and providing benefits to around million people, that is 7% of the world’s population.
The book presents the current state, legal and institutional framework for conservation and management of forest genetic resources, case studies and best practices in the application of different conservation methods and techniques (in situ and ex situ) as well as climate change aspects in this area.
The EU Biodiversity Strategy (COM() ) stipulates that sustainable forest management plans for publicly owned forests must be in place by The European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS) monitors forest fires. The EU also encourages ecological tendering (COM() ), which may promote demand for sustainably produced timber.Using Forest Management to Achieve Wildlife Conservation on Production Forest Landscapes (Deadline: 20 June ) Climate-Smart Forestry (CSF) in Mountain Regions (Deadline: 20 June ) Structure, Function, and Dynamics of Tropical Floodplain Forests (Deadline: 21 June ) Forest Food Resources (Deadline: 30 June ).The only realistic way to conserve our forests is to apply sustainable forest management practices—a conservation-and-livelihoods approach that the Rainforest Alliance has led since the late s, and one that’s already proven successful on nearly half a billion acres of land around the world.
