International Forest Policies

Tropical forests have been on the United Nations’ agenda since the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Unfortunately, corporate interests have co-opted these processes and initiatives, and they now promote mostly market-based ideas—such as the 'green' economy or green’ capitalism—which are false solutions.

The false idea that industrial plantations are a solution to the climate crisis is a golden opportunity for investment funds like Arbaro, which access scarce climate funding for expanding destructive monocultures.
