WWF’s Living Forests Report is part of an ongoing conversation with partners, policymakers, and business about how to protect, conserve, sustainably use, and govern the world’s forests in the 21st century.
Chapter Four of WWF's Living Planet Report explores how we can meet future demand for wood products within the finite resources of one planet.
Good governance in conservation involves a policy environment and empowered civil society organizations that support democratic participation in decision-making about environmental matters and equitable access to the benefits of conservation. WWF’s conservation work includes efforts to promote governance using multiple approaches ranging from the local to global scale.
For more than five decades, WWF has collaborated with indigenous peoples and local communities on activities such as conservation area management, sustainable use of natural resources, and policy advocacy on issues of shared concern. Our approach and some of our project successes are summarized in this fact sheet.
