Forests and armed conflict

Forests and armed conflict

War is a topic that is on many people’s minds these days; and rightly so. Not only do wars kill and maim large numbers of people, but they force millions more to flee their homes and farms and devastate the country’s national economies. Africa, in particular, has been hit hard by armed conflicts in recent years, and that is one major reason for worsening poverty there.
