Skills Performed to Solve Major Conflicts
United Nations has stepped up the pressure on Southeast Asian countries to end deforestation.
Nations committed their support to the goal of zero net deforestation set by the Worldwide Fund for Nature.
While 95% of our original forests were logged during the past 200 years, virgin forests remain in pockets throughout America.
Erosion in the Amazon
Skills Preformed to solve Major Conflicts
U.S. laws like the:
Wilderness Act
Lacey Act
Road less Rule
Stop illegal wood products from entering the U.S. marketplace.
Success in Reducing Deforestation
Citizens pushed their government to go further or change the businesses that are the main agents of deforestation
They voted, and received 20 percent of the vote as the Green Party, showing the support for stopping Amazon deforestation rapidly.

Deforestation Over the Years
Success to Reduce Deforestation
Nigeria's Reducing Emissions from Deforestation
Received support from the United Nations
Results on Reducing Deforestation
The Indonesia Government is currently trying to deal with the situation step by step.
However it has only dealt with minor issues (big amounts of forest being cleared, forest fires.)
Success to Reduce Deforestation
National economic development plans to expedite the mono-crop oil palm business.
Mono-Crop?
Mono-Crop is an agricultural practice in which the same crop is planted year after year, without practicing crop rotation or resting the soil.
Positive and Negative Effects
Cons
Since 2008, palm oil companies such as Wilmar International a multimillion dollar agribusiness and largest oil palm refinery operating in Southeast Asia, have been pressuring villagers to sell off their land.
Cons
Gohong is one of the last remaining Dayak villages in Borneo that is still self-sufficient because of their reliance on the forest, which they use to collect food and forest products, including medicine, durian fruits, rattan for weaving and smallholder rubber planting.
Fighting to stave off or introduce laws would avoid oil palm plantations from clearing their traditional forests.
Pros
