Living Forests Report - WWF

During the 2011 International Year of Forests, WWF’s Living Forests Report is part of a year long conversation with partners, policymakers, and business about how to protect, conserve, sustainably use, and govern the world’s forests in the 21st century.

ZNDD means no net forest loss through deforestation and no net decline in forest quality through degradation.

WWF advocates Zero Net Deforestation and Forest Degradation (ZNDD) by 2020 as a target that reflects the scale and urgency with which threats to the world’s forests and climate need to be tackled.

Achieving ZNDD will stem the depletion of forest-based biodiversity and ecosystem services, and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It addresses many targets of the Millennium Development Goals, Convention on Biological Diversity and UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
