Timber trade and tropical deforestation in Indonesia, The

This paper examines the links between the trade in tropical timber products and deforestation in Indonesia. We briefly review some of the evidence suggesting that timber production is a factor in tropical deforestation, and the role of timber trade policy in Indonesia in influencing this process by affecting forest-based industrialisation. These issues are of particular concern to Indonesia, as the country has recently banned the export of sawnwood to encourage further rapid development of plywood processing.
