Conjunto de Herramientas para la Gestión Forestal Sostenible (GFS)

Reducción de la degradación forestal

Este módulo está dirigido a los gestores forestales y de tierras, además de las partes interesadas en todos los sectores que realizan esfuerzos conjuntos para reducir la degradación forestal. Ofrece orientaciones sobre cómo ralentizar, detener y revertir la degradación forestal en la esfera de control e influencia de un gestor. Podría ser útil acompañar la lectura de este módulo junto con la del módulo sobre Reducción de la deforestación.
