Abstract

There is currently great concern about the sustainability of forestry and the contribution of private forestry towards this aim. It is therefore important to develop effective policies to support or shape private forestry. This book includes a selection of revised papers from a conference held in March 2001. The main subjects covered include: the emergence of a new paradigm for public involvement in private forestry; the challenges of sustainability; certification programmes; and country experiences from the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia.
