Experts from around the world are discussing how to better preserve and manage forests ahead of December's Climate Conference in Paris.

A debate on the future of forests organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is being held at the UN in New York this week.

The platform known as the International Arrangements of Forests was created by a UN global forum on forests called UNFF.

Eva Muller, Director of FAO's Forest Division says although deforestation rates are slowing down, there is still much to be done to stop the trend.

Speaking to Jorge Miyares, she begins by explaining why forests are so important.
