This July, the EP Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety approved a legislative proposal that states that European Union Member States are obliged to “compensate for emissions caused by deforestation” (European Parliament 2017b), since forests have a significant role in maintaining ecosystems. In the context of this proposal and the recent forest fires in Portugal, Spain and Italy, the term forest ratio has been chosen as this week’s IATE Term of the Week.
