Commonwealth Forests 2010 provides a complete picture of the state of forests and forestry in the Commonwealth. It covers not only the extent of forest cover, rates of forest loss and the creation of planted forests in the 54 countries of the Commonwealth but also sustainable forest management, benefits from the forest such as tangible products like timber and firewood as well as other benefits that are rarely quantified and are often taken for granted such as fruits, fodder and shelter, and the conservation of biological diversity. There are also chapters on forest research, the education of future generations of foresters, administration of Commonwealth forest services and the role of Commonwealth countries in the international dialogue on forests - especially in relation to forests and climate change. The final chapter on Challenges and Opportunities identifies the main issues facing Commonwealth foresters, planners and policy-makers and describes the opportunities that exist for collaboration in addressing them. The figures on which the text is based are in annexes, which also include details of the forest authorities for each Commonwealth country.
