Forests still cover about 30% of Earth’s land, but humans have been cutting them down at an increasingly alarming rate. In the last 30 years, over , square miles of forests have been lost. 2. To put that rate of deforestation into perspective, Nature says that research indicates people currently cut down about 15 billion trees a year.
Human-driven and natural loss of trees—deforestation—affects wildlife, ecosystems, weather patterns, and even the climate. Forests cover about 30 percent of the planet's land mass, but humans. socio-economic policies, have placed the country in a position where its people cannot even feed themselves.

1. Introduction. Tropical deforestation has been increasing since the s, and it has become a worldwide environmental issue (Rudel, ).In the 21st century, deforestation has also become a climate change issue because deforestation and forest degradation are one of the main sources of greenhouse gas emissions (IPCC, , van der Werf et al., ).Author: Motoe Miyamoto. The loss of mountain forests sparked by increasing temperatures and population growth would have serious socio-economic and environmental consequences, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) warned today, calling on governments to increase their efforts to protect them and incorporate them into their climate change policies.

However, due to shortness of time and the associated costs involved, this study is therefore limited to the effects of deforestation on the socio-economic livelihood of the people of the Local Government : Chrisantus Oden.

The book addresses the complexity of deforestation, including considering the benefits of deforestation (mostly private and short-term) as well as the costs (social and long-term). A further strength of the book is that effects examined go beyond the deforested area, for example, including the potential regional climatic effects of Author: John Stanturf.
