Beschreibung

This book discusses the reality of implementing sustainable forest management measures. Rather than simply offering theoretical descriptions, the book comprehensively details how sustainably managed forests can only be achieved through the cooperation and support of foresters, politicians, business leaders, local communities, consumers of forest-based goods and services, and the general public. The book also aims to raise public awareness of the factors involved in attaining the true sustainability of forest management, and the consequences of failing to do so, as well as the current issues facing sustainable forest management such as land ownership and land-use rights, political corruption, environmental stressors, and economic pressure. In 17 chapters, the book will appeal to academics and teachers in forestry and related areas, government practitioners, development agencies, and NGOs.

Dr. Alastair Fraser has over 50 years of international experience in forest-based development, with particular interest in the links between forestry and other sectors such as environment, energy, water, industry, tourism and agriculture. He is currently an independent forestry consultant, working specifically in forest sector policy and economics and strategic planning, inter and intra-sectoral coordination and negotiation, institutional strengthening and capacity building, forest management, wood based industry and energy development and climate change issues, project preparation and management, agroforestry, forest plantation establishment and management, conservation, and research planning and management.
