The most significant findings were that the overall rate of tropical deforestation is increasing. And global forests have experienced a net loss of 1.5M sq km during 2000-2012. Due to both natural (disturbance) and human causes. That’s a loss of forested land comparable in size to the entire state of Alaska.
