Book Choice - Let's Keep Our Forests

Forests cover one third of the Earth's land mass, performing vital functions around the world. Around 1.6 billion people - including more than 2,000 indigenous cultures - depend on forests for their livelihood.

Forests are the most biologically-diverse ecosystems on land, home to more than 80% of the terrestrial species of animals, plants and insects. They also provide shelter, jobs and security for forest-dependent communities.

On this day we've picked books on forest-based solutions, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and more broadly forests and sustainable development.
