Research Letter - Forests for People



Forests are essential for human well-being as they provide a broad range of goods and services which contribute to the livelihoods of around 1.6 billion people worldwide. Forests also provide several other benefits such as contributing to human health, cultural values, local traditions and education opportunities. Furthermore, they protect water and wildlife resources, and improve the local climate.
