Understanding Forest Bonds
Every year around 13 million hectares of forest around the world are cleared (FAO, 2010) for purposes such as crop cultivation, pastures, logging and mining. Although the rate of loss has declined in some countries in recent years, the global deforestation rate is still “alarmingly high” and it remains particularly high in the world’s main tropical forest regions (FAO, 2010). As forests are degraded, so are the ecosystem services they provide to humanity. These services are valued in the order of USD trillions per year (TEEB, 2009) for their role in underpinning livelihoods and supporting climate, food, energy and water security across the globe.
