Public policies and the misuse of forest resources by Robert C Repetto( Book )

7 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book documents how government policies affecting taxation, credit, timber concessions, and public investment contribute to deforestation and the misuse of forest resources in both the developing and the developed worlds. Ten case studies - of the United States, Braxil, China, the Phillipines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Liberia, Ghana, Gabon, and the Ivory Coast - show how forests have bben sacrificed to make quick profits and how many such ventures are intrinsically uneconomic but are supported by generous public subsidies. The authors argue that deforestation results not just from population growth or landlessness, but also from misguided government decisions. They convincingly describe the serious fiscal and economic losses such decisions entail and propose policy changes that can preserve forest resources without interfering with other economic objectives
The forest for the trees? : government policies and the misuse of forest resources by Robert C Repetto( Book )

7 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Experts have clearly established the extent of forest decline and likely economic, social and environmental consequences. They have also discussed deforestation's principal causes...This report goes further by showing how governments, committed in principle to conservation and wise resource use, are aggravating the losses of forests under their stewardship through mistaken policies. Such policies, by and large, were adopted for worthy objectives: industrial or agricultural growth, regional development, job creation, or poverty alleviation. But, this study finds such objectives typically have not been realized or have been attained only at excessive costs
