Forests and sustainable forest management

A rapidly growing world population increases the demand for forest products. After oil and gas, timber, fuel and other wood products rank third on the global market. The pressure on natural forests keeps raising leading to high rates of forest loss due to deforestation and forest degradation. These processes release substantial amounts of carbon dioxide, the most common of greenhouse gases, into the atmosphere and further contribute to climate change.聽 Corporacion Aldea Global addresses these challenges by developing and implementing better alternatives for wood production and consumption that combat climate change.

El mercado de los productos forestales a nivel mundial ocupa el tercer lugar despu茅s del petr贸leo y el gas, esto como consecuencia del incremento de la poblaci贸n, la demanda de las materias primas, causando la desaparici贸n acelerada de los bosques. En vista de esta realidad, la Corporaci贸n Aldea Global ha venido proponiendo alternativas sostenibles para los bosques y el uso de la madera.
