The true price of palm oil

Reports & Research
Septembre, 2021
Papua New Guinea

The climate crisis is no longer projection, but reality. Forests play a key role in regulating the global climate and are critical to preventing runaway global heating. They are also a treasure trove of biological diversity, and home to many indigenous peoples and forest communities. Yet forests continue to be burned and destroyed at an alarming rate. The primary driver of deforestation is agribusiness, with palm oil a chief culprit.

La diversification pour la résilience climatique. Trente options pour les organisations de producteurs forestiers et agricoles

Reports & Research
Septembre, 2021

La résilience climatique mondiale est une question de vie ou de mort. Dans les paysages forestiers, 1,3 milliard de petits exploitants agricoles, de communautés et de peuples autochtones doivent organiser leur résilience climatique pour survivre. Du fait qu’ils sont coresponsables de la gestion d’une grande partie des forêts restantes et de l’approvisionnement alimentaire d’une nombreuse population pauvre à travers le monde, leur résilience est également essentielle aux solutions climatiques mondiales.

Roads to Ruin: the emerging impacts of infrastructure development in Congo Basin forests

Reports & Research
Septembre, 2021

A report by RFUK reveals the growing extent, and impact, of transport and energy infrastructure development in the Congo Basin – which is on its way to becoming a major driver of deforestation in the world’s second largest rainforest. The eight case studies featured in this report show that, while certain projects may bring some economic benefits, environmental and social impacts have been overwhelmingly higher than necessary due to bad planning, corruption, failure to follow better practice, and simple negligence.

Mapping Together: A Guide to Monitoring Forest and Landscape Restoration Using Collect Earth Mapathons

El Salvador

Mapping Together helps people use Collect Earth mapathons to monitor tree-based restoration. Collect Earth enables users to create precise data that can show where trees are growing outside the forest across farms, pasture, and urban areas and how the landscape has changed over time. Building on WRI and FAO’s Road to Restoration, a guide that helps people make tough choices and set realistic goals for restoring landscapes, Mapping Together takes this process one step further.

Forest Crimes in Cambodia

Reports & Research
Février, 2021

Cambodia has suffered some of the highest rates of deforestation (measured as a percentage of forest cover) of any country since the 1970s – and rates have been increasing significantly in the past decade. Even the country’s so-called protected areas have been severely impacted, despite supposedly being safeguarded under Cambodian law.

Global Forest Watch estimated that between 2001 and 2018, Cambodia had lost 557 000 hectares of tree cover in protected areas, representing an 11.7% loss of the total protected area.
