Deforestation Drivers

50 soccer fields every minute – in this speed we lose the global forests. One of the most valuable ecosystems on earth is destroyed in incredible rates.

Modern developments, such as globalization, have significantly altered the drivers of deforestation in the past decades. The harvest of tropical timber for the global market or deforestation by small-holder farmers are minor factors nowadays. In fact, commercial agriculture and plantation economy is responsible for about 70% of deforestation.

This very intensive agriculture predominantly grows soy and oil palm. But also cattle ranching, deforestation for fire wood, forest plantations for pulp and paper and mining are strong deforestation drivers.

Fairventures wants to halt this threatening development.
