Plantation Politics: Forest plantations in development

Editors: Caroline Sargent, Stephen Bass

Book, 192 pages

Plantations are playing an increasingly important part in the development and the economies of the South. This book examines the rationale and purpose of plantations in forestry and development, showing up the misconceptions and myths that have surrounded their role, analysing the problems they present and describing the contribution they can make - when properly planned and managed - to sustainable development. The conditions appropriate for both simple and complex plantations are described; together with an analysis of the challenges typically presented by complex plantations.
