Authors: Adriana Galvani (University of Bologna (IT), Member of Major Groups of UN, Department of History, Anthropology, Geography, Bologna, Italy) 
Book Description:
UN declared 2011 as the International Year of Forests (IYF). Many organizations and stakeholders have been involved all around the world and many issues have been discussed. This book offers a full list of all the conferences held on the theme during the IYF as well as several other case studies. Additionally, it reviews the most important organizations that seek to protect the environment and safeguard forests. It presents the policies implemented at a local, national, and international level for afforestation and against desertification. It discusses the benefits and economic advantages connected to forests, the greatest of which is their ability to mitigate climate change and regulate pollution. Topics concerning the forest are interesting and multifaceted, so this work is essentially interdisciplinary or, better, “trans-disciplinary”. (Imprint: Nova)
