State of the World's Forests 2003

Price: $ 40

The biennial " State of the World's Forests" - now in its fifth edition - presents a global picture of the forest sector, providing up-to-date information on activities and institutional developments as well as highlighting challenges and opportunities related to some key issues. It comprises contributions from key intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations and from individuals contributing in their personal capacity, in addition to pieces prepared by FAO. Such a mix is consistent with the theme of the 2003 edition - "partnerships in action". An effort has been made to cover many subjects that are especially relevant to discussions taking place in international fora today. Part I presents recent developments and areas of current attention in forest resources; the management, conservation and sustainable development of forests; the institutional framework; and the international forest policy dialogue. Part II contains five chapters, each addressing a particular subject in more detail: Forests and poverty alleviation; Sustainable use and management of freshwater resources - the role of forests; How sustainable use of forests can contribute to conserving biodiversity; Science and technology in the forest sector - widening gaps and narrowing options; and Recent trends in fiscal policies in the forest sector in Africa.The " State of the World's Forests 2003" will prove a useful reference tool for policy-makers, foresters and other interested readers seeking an up-to-date view of the major issues involving the forest sector today.
