Sustainable Forest Management

How is it possible to completely rethink forest-management methods and their interactions with other uses of rural and urban areas?

Published in October 2001

The Proposal Paper "Forests of the World" was elaborated on the basis of many contributions to an electronic forum by participants, which took place in 2001, from February to October.

As expected, due to the complexity of the theme, this Paper is full of contrasts. The proposals reflect several realities and visions - such as the United Nations conference in New York and a meeting of young people in Amazonia. Marking this diversity, a common objective: to stop the course of forest destruction around the world.

The main theme of the proposals is to maintain the source of biological and cultural diversity in forests, with the objective of establishing guidelines for a healthy and sustainable relationship between human beings and the environment.
