Guide for teachers

Because of the forest, you and your pupils can take a deep breath of clean air and serves as habitat to thousands of life forms. Forests also regulate the water cycle and ensure that rivers can still carry water, ensuring biodiversity, adds medicinal value. Finally, it also has a strong economic significance, as it allows the production of wood. As a teacher, you are educating the future guardians of the earth, so there is a lot you can do! Because every gesture count, it is extremely important that children are accustomed to good practices in relation to the environment. Besides, strengthening ties with nature can only be but fun.

Here, we propose to you a series of materials that connect the programme with everyday issues discussed in the classroom. Deforestation and its well-management are interlinked to many topics that every school teaches to their pupils. In addition, it can improve education by making it more inclusive and dynamic.

Drivers of Deforestation and Forest Degradation: A Synthesis Report for REDD+ Policymakers

Forest Carbon Partnership Facility

fcpf

This synthesis report investigates activities (drivers) that lead to deforestation and forest degradation. It explores the relevance of drivers in REDD+ policy development and implementation, key interventions to address driver activity, the role of drivers for national forest monitoring and for developing REDD+ forest reference (emission) levels.

Forests have four major roles in climate change: they currently contribute about one-sixth of global carbon emissions when cleared, overused or degraded; they react sensitively to a changing climate.

Know all the role of forest in climate change.

Forests and climate change is an important theme of CIFOR’s work. They investigate how to improve forest management and grow global tree cover to benefit the environment and livelihoods.  The report “Transforming REDD+: Lessons and new directions”, particularly, provides a critical, evidence-based analysis of REDD+ implementation so far.
