World's tropical forests 'better managed' now than 5 yrs ago
London, June 8 (ANI): An international survey has found that tropical forests of the world are better managed now than five years ago.
The area under some form of sustainable management plan has increased by about 50 percent over the period.
The most significant improvements have been seen in Africa, according to the survey conducted by the International Tropical Timber Organisation (ITTO).
The study analysed data from 33 important forest countries, including the really big players such as Brazil, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Indonesia.
"The top line is that the area under sustainable forest management has gone up from 36 to 53 million hectares in five years," Duncan Poore, one of the study's authors, told BBC News.
Countries that have made major increases in protection include Bolivia, Brazil, Cameroon, Congo, Gabon, Peru and Venezuela.
However, the study also revealed that about 90percent of tropical forest still lacks protection. (ANI)
