Overexploitation depleting forest resources in Near East

06 June 2006, Rome /Larnaka, Cyprus - While many countries in the region have increased their forest area during the period 2000-2005, heavy grazing, wood, clearing of forests for agriculture, and urban development are depleting forest resources in the already forest-scarce Near East, according to FAO.

Planted Forests Code Web site

A multi-stakeholder process to derive a Planted Forests Code has been underway since January 2005, to detail a framework of guiding principles and implementation considerations to balance the social, cultural, environmental and economic dimensions of planted forests development. The Planted Forests Code is available for stakeholder feedback on this Web site in English, French and Spanish. Any comments on the Planted Forests Code should be directed to FAO by e-mail to Planted-Forests-Code@fao.org by 30 September 2006.
