Business and biodiversity :: Sustainable forestry
The conservation and sustainable use of forest ecosystems and forest biodiversity are critical components of the sustainable development. Billions people depend on forests for their livelihoods, while wood is the main household energy source for heating and cooking of many of the world''s poorest communities.
Additional information on biodiversity resources and the role of the national institutions for their management and conservation could be found at BIODIVERSITY IN BULGARIA.
