This annual report outlines the key events of the year January - December 2015. It shows how we give a voice to the people who live in, derive their livelihoods from and are best placed to protect the world’s forests.
It further shows how each of our campaigns brings individuals, communities and civil society together to work towards the same goal. With this focus on building networks and coalitions, both within and outside the EU, we will make the EU work for forests and forest communities in the interests of a shared planet.
In March 2015 Fern entered its third decade of campaigning for an EU that protects rather than destroys forests, and which respects rather than ignores the rights of those who depend on them. This annual report outlines the key events of our year April 2014 to March 2015 but also marks some of the highlights of our 20 years of campaigning.
As well as outlining the successes that FERN and our partners have achieved in the period April 2013 to March 2014, this report includes an essay by Fred Pearce looking forward to the issues that the EU is going to have to deal with it if it is going to help put a final end to its role as one of the world's most prolific deforesters.
