The economics of the tropical timber trade by Edward Barbier( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is genuine cause for concern over the excessive exploitation of tropical forests in many regions, but also many misconceptions about its causes and sources." "The Economics of the Tropical Timber Trade provides a detailed analysis of the economic linkages between the trade and forest degradation. Based on a report prepared for the ITTO, it looks at current and future market conditions, and assesses the impacts on tropical forests of both the international timber trade and domestic demand. The authors examine the causes of deforestation, and compare the environmental impacts of the timber trade with other factors, such as the conversion of the forests to agriculture. Finally, they assess the national and international trade policy options, and discuss the potential role of interventions in the international timber trade in promoting efficient and sustainable use of forest resources." "The book will be of interest to those concerned with forest management and policy, trade and environment, and with the economics of conservation and resource use."--BOOK JACKET

He places management for timber in the wider context of tropical forest conservation and outlines a
