ITV News has travelled to the frontlines of the global battle with deforestation – to the very points where the Earth stands on the edge of environmental catastrophe.
Starting a new series, Earth on the Edge, our correspondents report from Europe, South America and Africa, bearing witness to the troubles which are happening right now and impact us all.
Over the coming months, Earth on the Edge will examine the reality of climate change and the impact it is having on the planet right now.
In this special report, ITV News correspondents expose the illegal practice of logging in the Carpathian Mountains of Ukraine, which provokes uneasy questions for the origins of some of the wood imported to the UK from mainland Europe.
We also discover how far Ghana is now in the grips of a climate change disaster and the charity initiative which is attempting to arrest the disaster.
