Solutions for Deforestation

Please note: This page is still under construction – please click here for a list of completed chapters. The People’s Agenda 21 Project is a 100% volunteer project created and designed by the One Community Team. We are working 1000′s of hours to keep developing its 40 chapters of sustainability to share for those interested in sustainability what is available and working around the world. Thank you for your patience.

ADDRESSING DEFORESTATION

Trees are vital in restoring natural ecosystems as well as stopping desertification. Many developed locations are confronted with the effects of air pollution and fire damage on their forests. It is beneficial to demonstrate education and participation of the general public and allow easy access to volunteering and incentives for such programs. To ensure a rational and holistic approach to the sustainable and environmentally sound development of forests, it will help to demonstrate replanting and reclaiming of depleted forests areas and cleared areas not being used.

DEFORESTATION FACTS

Many developed countries are confronted with the effects of air pollution and fire damage on their forests. The need for securing the multiple roles of forests and forest lands through adequate and appropriate support has been repeatedly emphasized in many scientific reports.

SOLUTIONS FOR DEFORESTATION

Forests worldwide have been and are being threatened by uncontrolled degradation and conversion to other types of land uses, influenced by increasing human needs; agricultural expansion; and environmentally harmful mismanagement. The impacts of loss and degradation of forests are in the form of soil erosion; loss of biological diversity, damage to wildlife habitats and degradation of watershed areas, deterioration of the quality of life and reduction of the options for development. The greening of suitable areas, in all its component activities, is an effective way of increasing public awareness and participation in protecting and managing forest resources.

FOREST  SUSTAINABILITY

The vast potential of forests and forest lands as a resource for development is not yet fully realized. Forest resources, being renewable, can be sustainably managed in a manner that is compatible with environmental conservation. The implications of the harvesting of forest resources for the other values of the forest can be taken fully into consideration in the development of forest infrastructures. The survival of forests and their continued contribution to human welfare depends to a great extent on succeeding in this endeavor.

FOREST REHABILITATION

Assessment and systematic observations are essential components of long-term planning and for shifting inadequacies. This mechanism is often overlooked in forest management, conservation and development. It is important to rectify this situation for a better understanding of the role and value of forests and to realistically plan for their effective conservation, management, regeneration, and sustainable development.
