Música al natural, es la que ofrecen bosques, selvas y montes. En una armonía absoluta animales, plantas, ríos y árboles se suman para armar una sinfonía que pocas veces es perceptible para los habitantes de ciudad.  Como si habláramos de temporadas musicales, cada época del año trae ritmos diferentes. Con tonos agudos llega la lluvia a animar a aquellos animales que disfrutan de ella, y en tiempos de sol intenso, son las aves quienes trinan con mayor intensidad.  Así es, toda una orquesta que se blinda con los guardianes mayores, los árboles. Diferentes especies inundan los bosques para brindar refugio a animales,...

Harbouring the vast majority of life on Earth, forests are a vital natural resource, which provide many ecosystem services essential for life as well as for human livelihoods. Forests are sources of important raw materials such as timber, woodfuel and Non-Timber-Forest Products (NTFP). However, competition to access forests, like many natural resources, is often a motive for human conflicts. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) estimates that in the last 60 years, at least 40 per cent of all intrastate conflicts have a link to natural resources. This places natural resources as one of a country’s most critical assets for peacebuilding, with efforts...
The number of conflicts related to natural resources is increasing. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) estimates that in the last 60 years, at least 40 per cent of all intrastate conflicts have a link to natural resources. Those conflicts are stimulated by the exploitation of natural resources, whether high-value resources like timber, diamonds, gold, minerals and oil, or scarce ones like fertile land and water. Natural resources are one of a country’s most critical assets for peacebuilding. Land, forests, minerals, oil, water, and other resources are the foundations for livelihoods of local people as well as for national economies. They...
