Zero Net Deforestation and forest Degradation
Increasingly, we have focused on remedying the fundamental market and governance failures that drive poor land use practices. Achieving Zero Net Deforestation and forest Degradation (ZNDD) by 2020 requires a range of different, but complimentary approaches:
- In and around forests we need clear land tenure rights, transparent and equitable land use planning processes and forestry and farming practices that produce more from less land.
- Outside the forest, we need markets that value forest biodiversity and ecosystem services, and consumption patterns that meet the needs of the poor while eliminating waste and over-consumption by the affluent.
