Forestwatch Issue 156 and Cancun and International Year of the Forest Specials

Welcome to the first Forest Watch of 2011. This is also United Nations Year of the Forest and so FERN has written a two-page Forest Watch special looking at the state of play for forests through the lens of our campaigns which can be accessed below. Last month too was  an important month for forests due to decisions made at the 16th Conference of the Parties in Cancun. FERN’s two-page special report from that meeting is attached below. Articles in this months Forest Watch include:

  • VPA processes see slow progression
