Privatising Sustainable Forestry: A global review of trends and challenges
This report examines the ways in which economic liberalisation has affected the forestry sector. Drawing on a global survey, data is compiled for 23 countries. The information is pulled together to highlight trends in three principal areas: private sector participation, market-based instruments and restructuring forestry authorities. The report goes on to identify three policy measures with special promise for encouraging sustainable forestry: certification, company-community partnerships and measures to encourage private sector involvement in conservation.
