Description

  • The authors explain that the main drivers of reforestation presented are linked to the Forest Transition Theory: that economic development and food scarcity are pathways for reforestation.
  • But also they assert that this theory does not explain all areas of reforestation, especially plantation and agroforestry versions of reforestation.
  • They hope that increased research in large scale forest change can help advise and complement the reforestation components of reduced emissions from deforestation and degradation (REDD) programs.
