Wood: from forest to the consumer

Research output: Book/ReportAuthored book

Abstract

Illegal logging in the Amazon has long attracted the attention of
environmentalists in Brazil and abroad, but the issue is becoming increasingly
urgent. Climate change and other challenges faced by the planet in the 21st
century mobilize businesses and require a new approach by the government to
fight predatory uses of the forest. Fraud takes many forms, from the initial timber harvest to its final use in furniture and construction, which complicates efforts to stem and control illegal trade. This challenge requires a broad effort to
ensure the conservation of natural resources for future generations.
