If a company wants to use a community’s land for eucalyptus plantations, the community should think carefully about whether this is a good idea. Civil society organizations that support communities in interacting with the government or plantation companies can use this briefing document to start to understand the environmental impacts that communities should be aware of. Although not covered in this document, civil society organizations and communities should also think carefully about the other potential impacts of eucalyptus plantations, including potential positive and negative effects on social conditions, human rights, and economic opportunities.
