    Over the last 25 years (1990-2015), Viet Nam has experienced drastic changes in forest conditions. By early 1990s, Vietnam's forest area reached lowest in history. Yet, the two decades later experienced significant increase of forest area in both plantation and natural forests, from 9.14 million ha (28% forest cover) in 1990 to 13.95 million ha (40.96% forest cover) in 2013, representing an increase of 4.8 million ha in 23 years or 210 thousand ha per year (FAO 2014). Along with this line is the expansion of forest area through afforestation, natural expansion of forest and reforestation.

    Chile is considered a high-income developing country. For its nearly 18 million people life quality, economic growth, human development, globalization and per capita GDP are among the highest in Latin America. The forest area, including indigenous forest and plantation forest has been increasing by 18,5 % between 1997 and 2014, reaching 15,9 million hectares representing 21 % of Chile total area (75,7 milliones ha). Today’s forest economy is based on private plantations that grew in 17 years from 1,9 million hectares to 2,4 million hectares (INFOR, 2003 y 20141, 20142). An important part of native forests is represented in the State National System of Protected Areas and is administered by CONAF3, with 36 National Parks, 49 National Reserves and 15 Natural Monuments. Over the past 25 years they have established native forest private reserves. About 2/3 of native forest belongs to privates and the rest to the state.

    Ghana Case Study: Prepared for FAO as part of the State of the World’s Forests 2016 (SOFO) 2016

    Agriculture, including forestry, is the backbone of the Ghanaian economy. As at 2014, it provided 22% of the Gross Domestic Product, 50% of export earnings and 45.5% and 50.9% of total employment in agricultural production and processing respectively. The export of timber and other forest products accounted for 11%of Ghana’s export earnings and 6% of the GDP in 2000. The formal sector is responsible for providing livelihood to around 100,000 people, but many more earn some form of income from th e forests. In the recent years timber export has fallen, with 2010 seeing a fall of 5.4%. However, while there was a decline in the export, the country still saw an increase in revenue for the same period. In 2010, Ghana earned 137.9 million Euros through timber export, when compared to 128.2 million Euros in 2009. Forest value added to GDP in 2011 was recorded at $929,400 (GhC 1,549,000) and $650,513 (GhC 2,537,000) in 2014.
