Achieving sustainable management of tropical forests: overview and conclusions

Code: 9781786769169
Jürgen Blaser, Bern University of Applied Sciences, Switzerland; Patrick D. Hardcastle, Forestry Development Specialist, UK; and Gillian Petrokofsky, University of Oxford, UK

Chapter synopsis: This chapter summarises the key findings from the chapters written by subject specialists from around the world for Achieving sustainable management of tropical forests, providing a synopsis of current knowledge and thinking about different aspects of Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) to help those who are responsible for its achievement. As one of the main renewable natural resources, forests will be expected to help mitigate climate change, protect soil and water, provide clean air, conserve biodiversity, help maintain the mental and emotional health of humans who live in them and who visit them to find space and calmness. Concurrently, these forests will also be required to produce wood fibre and other products. This is a tall order but with adequate recognition, finance and human resources made available, it can be achieved through adoption of the principles and practice of SFM.
