THE FOCUS OF THIS ISSUE: FSC’s PLANTATION CERTIFICATION REVIEW

Since October 2004 the FSC has been carrying out a plantation certification review whose outcome is yet unclear. The WRM has consistently raised its concerns about the social and environmental impacts of certified plantations, highlighting that certification was undermining local peoples’ struggles and empowering plantation companies. The outcome of the current review is therefore very important, both for the FSC’s credibility and for local peoples opposing large scale tree monocultures. We hope that the information and analysis provided in this bulletin will be a useful input to this debate, both inside and outside the FSC.
