DescriptionThe report is of the alteration of the Yungas taking place over the past few years. The large scale monoculture tree plantations, centred on exotic fast-growing species (pine, eucalyptus, Grevillea robusta, Melia azedarach) has been promoted and financed by multilateral institutions, such as the World Bank, mainly to supply the powerful pulp and paper industry . For this reason, native forests are being clearcut! (see WRM bulletins 38, 39 and 52). They are "green deserts" that have lost ecosystem multi-functionality and have been named as "Forests of Silence".
