Large scale monoculture plantations are increasingly being promoted worldwide, especially but not only in the global South. These plantations are established with the objective to generate timber, pulpwood, oil or carbon sinks. Furthermore, the recent boom in agrofuels is creating greater demand for oil palm, soy, sugarcane and jathropha plantations.


Friends of the Earth International calls for a halt to the conversion of forests to large plantations. We support local communities in defending their land and territories.
