    Forests play major roles in climate change. They contribute carbon emissions when destroyed or degraded and they suffer from changing climate, drought and extreme weather. Managed sustainably, they can provide a unique environmental service by removing excess carbon from the atmosphere, storing it in biomass, soils and products. In addition, sustainably produced wood fuels offer an environmentally benign alternative to fossil fuels.

    El 2008 está a medio camino del plazo previsto para alcanzar los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio. Pero, pese a los avances logrados, no se conseguirán de continuar las tendencias actuales. Se calcula que faltarán US$30,000 millones de la ayuda prometida, déficit que podría costar cinco millones de vidas. Empezando por la reunión del G8 en Japón, los países ricos deben aprovechar una serie de cumbres de alto nivel a celebrarse en el 2008 para garantizar que se alcancen los Objetivos, y para abordar tanto el cambio climático como la actual crisis alimentaria.
