Forests to fall for food and fuel

Date : 14th July 2008, Source : BBC Link to News Story



Demand for land to grow food, fuel crops and wood is set to outstrip supply, leading to the probable destruction of forests, a report warns. The Rights and Resources Initiative (RRI) says only half of the extra land needed by 2030 is available without eating into tropical forested areas. A companion report documents poor progress in reforming land ownership and governance in developing countries. Both reports were launched on Monday in UK government offices in London.
