Monoculture tree plantations in Ecuador

Disponible uniquement en anglais et espagnol. 

By Patricia Granda

Through various government programmes and initiatives, with the support of international cooperation agencies, monoculture tree plantations have been established in Ecuador’s three mainland regions.

Through three case studies and an overview of the history of plantation activity in the country, this publication seeks to present a comprehensive and up-to-date picture of the serious threat posed by tree plantations in Ecuador, of which most of the population has been largely unaware until now.
