Extreme conflict and tropical forests

Extreme conflict and tropical forests

At a time when the international community is devoting significant attention to the issue of governance as a key factor in global environmental decline, this book provies a timely insight into the relationships between extreme conflict, the international trade in forest products, and the social, economic and environmental condition of tropical forests and their human communities. Drawing on the expertise of both natural and social scientists, this book explores the underlying causes and the social and environmental consequences of conflict in tropical forest areas. Case studies from Africa, Asia and Latin America present a range of issues – from illicit crops and “conflict timber production, to the potential of peace parks for improving human security, social quality and biodiversity conservation.
