WBCSD’s new Infographic on Forests highlights the importance of ALL forests - the Forest Continuum - and sustainable forest management in meeting the increasing demand for wood, fiber, fuel and food. With the Forest Continuum Infographic the WBCSD Forest Solutions Group pulls together the key messages relating to the crucial role of forests and sustainable forest management in achieving global sustainability goals. The Forest Continuum includes different types of forests - from natural forests to plantations - and all are critical in meeting different needs. Sustainable Forest Management provides multiple benefits, ranging from social to economic and ecological, for both people and the planet.
