Forest is an integral part of the global terrestrial ecosystem that provides key functions include supplying forest products, alleviating climate change, preserving biodiversity, and conserving water and soils. However, rapid economic development, population expansion, living standards growth, demands for ecology increase and forest products consumption amplification are adding increasing pressure on forests. Forests play a vital role in mitigating global climate change. Deforestation will exacerbate climate change. Sustainable forest management, critical for regional economic, social, and environmental balance, is more important than ever.
