The war in Syria has wiped out 19% of the country’s forests, equivalent to the entire metropolitan area of Barcelona

The sustained destruction of forest cover is the critical result of the war that Syria has been experiencing since 2011, especially in the northeastern mountain range and around Damascus -the capital in the south- with long-term environmental and humanitarian consequences. CREAF pre-doctoral researcher Angham Daiyoub is the first author of the scientific article analysing the situation.
