Bulletin Issue 104 – March 2006

THE FOCUS OF THIS ISSUE: BIODIVERSITY

Biodiversity is not just about species, habitats and genes: it is about life and interactions between the different species, including us humans. In this issue of the WRM Bulletin we aim at putting a human face to biodiversity, providing information about how some human actors (mostly in corporations) impact on species, habitats and genes, and on how this is destroying the lives and livelihoods of many more fellow humans who depend on biodiversity for survival. We have divided the bulletin in two sections -forests and plantations- in order to stress the differences between both, which –incredibly enough– are still being confused by “expert” actors and processes such as the FAO, the United Nations Forum on Forests, the Convention on Climate Change and even the Convention on Biological Diversity.
