Fern publishes Annual Report 2015 highlighting advances in forests protection
The environmental NGO Fern has released its Annual Report 2015, including projects, researches and achievements from 2015 and beyond.
Highlights include the launch of the campaign for an EU action plan to protect forests and respect rights and the stalling of plans to introduce biodiversity offsetting in the UK and the EU.
Fern’s activities also focus on controversial themes like the impacts of intensified bioenergy use, forest finance, climate change and reduction of fossil fuel emissions.
"2015 was an exciting year at Fern, with a number of successes thanks to our partnerships in the Congo Basin, West Africa, South East Asia, and Europe", said the organization. "Fern’s work to end illegal logging is progressing well despite heightened political tensions in several important countries."
The annual report includes a 'behind the scenes' section describing a typical day of FERN campaigners.
