Asia Facts

  • Original forest cover in Asia totaled over 15 million square kilometers, nearly one-quarter of the world's total.
  • 72% of Asia's original forest has been lost, and of what is left only one-fifth (a mere 6% of original forest) can be classified as frontier forest.
  • 60% of Asia's frontier forests are under moderate or high threat; logging is a primary threat in half of these areas.
  • Asia is the most densely populated region in the world; population growth poses a serious long-term threat to remaining frontier forests.
