Forests

Forests contain the world’s greatest storehouse of biodiversity and provide us with vital environmental, social and economic services.

Through its forest programmes, IUCN China aims to conserve forest biodiversity, reduce illegal logging and promote the sustainable use of forest products for the benefit of the rural poor.

Livelihoods and Landscapes

The Livelihoods and Landscapes Strategy (LLS) is a global initiative that examines the rights and access of the rural poor to forest products in the context of the entire landscape in which people and forests interact.

Forest Law Enforcement and Governance

The failure of forest governance, driven by and causing illegal logging and other predatory practices is a significant problem for timber producing countries as well as consumer countries.
