After a long history of deforestation in Wales, we are now gradually increasing our forest cover and protecting our existing woodland. However, from both a climate change and poverty reduction perspective, it is the destruction of forests in the tropics, which truly threatens the world’s climate, as well as the basic needs of food, shelter and livelihoods for people living there.
Size of Wales was created by the Wales’ Millennium Development Goals Task Force as part of Wales’ response to the dual challenges of climate change and international poverty reduction. The overall development was led by Commissioner for Sustainable Futures, Peter Davies and Chair of the Waterloo Foundation, Heather Stevens, in discussion with many other people in Wales and further afield.
We are a small team with a big ambition!
