Global deforestation continues at an alarming rate: 13 million hectares of forest are destroyed every year. (UN)

The best way to work towards restoration of degraded forests is by working with local and indigenous communities by vesting in them the rights over the forest resources, partnering with them to integrate their local knowledge for promotion of local  natural species diversities.
