Forests & People

D.N. Tewari (Author)

The environment on which we all depend is under threat from growing levels of greenhouse gas emissions, biodiversity loss and acidifying oceans. Environmental threats such as climate change, land degradation, deforestation, biodiversity loss, air and water pollution and natural disasters affect everyone, but they hurt poor countries and poor communities most. We have an obligation to protect our planet for the sake of future generations and to safeguard today’s hard-won development gains. Hence, a clean and safe environment should be seen as a right, not a privilege.

Forest cover one-third of the earth’s land surface and their conservation and sustainable management are essential for the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals, combating climate change and its impacts, ecosystem management and in reducing environmental disasters.

The book suggests that people-centric forest management can ensure food and water security, eradication of poverty and hunger, affordable energy and shelter, medicinal plants for health and nutrition, jobs and economy to vulnerable indigenous peoples and tourism and recreation facilities for all people.
