This significant percentage loss is of great importance to national policymakers in Burundi, but actual deforestation rates of 15,000 ha per year were much lower than in other parts of the world and therefore are less important from a global perspective. The largest actual loss in Africa occurred in the Sudan, with 959,000 ha deforested each year. Indonesia deforested a staggering 1,312,000 ha per year over this time period (FAO 2001). If left unchecked, the clearing, burning, logging, and fragmentation of forest will destroy most of the world’s tropical forests in our lifetime.
