Forest at Doodhpathree (India)

Today is the first International Day of Forest.

"The four "Fs" – food, fodder, fiber and fuel" says the Assistant Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), "are threatened by climate change and population growth".

Eduardo Rojas-Briales says with the population expected to increase to nine billion by 2050, the underlying worry is the huge tension around land use which will affect the four "Fs".

In this interview with Donn Bobb, Eduardo Rojas Briales first talks about the Day.
