DescriptionIn the last several decades, the intensity and scale of forest exploitation have increased significantly. A large number of developing countries experiencing increasing deforestation trends are also facing acute shortages of fuelwood, fodder, industrial timber, and other forest products for domestic USC. Besides potential environmental degradation, depletion of forests and trees may exacerbate poverty, displace indigenous populations, and impede agricultural productivity. Deforestation, especially in the humid tropics, has serious regional and global implications (potential climate change, loss of biodiversity, and degradation of large watersheds).
