Year of the forest

21.03.2011 - Proteccion del medio ambiente

With the year of forests the United Nations (UN) want to bring the responsibility of men for the woodlands to the collective conscience. Sustainably cultivated woods protect the climate, the water balance and the soil from damage. Thus, it counters the causes for diseases and poverty. The year of forests focuses on extra-sensitive ecosystems which are especially threatened by destructive exploitation – this does especially apply to tropical rainforests. During the international year of forests miscellaneous events will be held worldwide and be coordinated by the Forum on Forests (UNFF) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the UN. The goal is to make people familiar with the meaning of this cultural heritage and give them the chance to experience it.
