This book analyzes the wide range of issues that should be taken
into account in forest-related legislation. It stresses that forest law
must be understood in the context of the broader legal framework
governing land use and land tenure, as well as international
obligations related to trade, environmental protection, and human
rights. The book also pays significant attention to institutional
arrangements and governance practices relevant to forests, including
decentralization, transparency, and law enforcement. The authors draw
extensively on experience from around the world to provide tools for
dealing with various forest management challlenges.
The authors are experts in the field of forest law. Lawrence C.
