As recognized by both the UN and the European Commission, forests are rapidly disappearing as a result of deforestation and degradation. Furthermore, global deforestation and forest degradation also negatively affects many objectives, both of Europe and of the international community; and in several other important aspects of life on Earth, such as ensuring peace and good governance or promoting the rule of law as highlighted in the objectives of the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development.
