Forest losses broke a record in 2020, when the pandemic appeared


According to Rod Taylor, global director of the forests program at WRI, the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic and lockouts had an indirect impact on forest loss patterns. He also said that people who are forced to return to rural areas due to deadlocks and the worsening economic situation in cities could have a greater impact in the future.

Saying that countries facing high levels of debt due to the economic impacts of the pandemic will be used with commercial trees to exploit their forests in an unsustainable manner, Seymour said, “If we do not offer alternatives, governments facing high levels of debt are likely to experience high levels of forest loss,” Seymour said.
