    State of the World's Forests 2016 (SOFO)
    Forests and agriculture: land use challenges and opportunities
    2016
    Forests and trees support sustainable agriculture. They stabilize soils and climate, regulate water flows, give shade and shelter, and provide a habitat for pollinators and the natural predators of agricultural pests. They also contribute to the food security of hundreds of millions of people, for whom they are important sources of food, energy and income. Yet, agriculture remains the major driver of deforestation globally, and agricultural, forestry and land policies are often at odds.

    The State of the World’s Forests (SOFO) 2016 shows that it is possible to increase agricultural productivity and food security while halting or even reversing deforestation, highlighting the successful efforts of Costa Rica, Chile, the Gambia, Georgia, Ghana, Tunisia and Viet Nam. Integrated land-use planning is the key to balancing land uses, underpinned by the right policy instruments to promote both sustainable forests and agriculture.

    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.
