Description: As the potential global impact of forest destruction & degradation becomes better understood, the link between poverty & deforestation in developing countries is of increasing concern. In this clear, focused book, eminent members of the worldwide forestry community, under the auspices of the United Nations Development Programme, explore the biological, social, & economic causes of tropical deforestation & offer remedies appropriate to the biology & culture of diverse regions & localities. Modern forestry techniques, the contributors show, make it possible to alleviate poverty without destroying forests. But, this can happen only if we understand & effectively manage each factor that significantly affects forests & local populations. The authors look at the relationships between forests & poverty; examine successes & failures in agroforestry, the development & maintenance of national parks, & commercialization; & assess the impact on forests of rural poor families, land ownership, & property rights. The authors also describe the importance of cooperation at local, regional, & national levels in the creation of forest strategies, & they urge nations to use a locally based approach appropriate to the biology & culture of the specific geographic location.
