Forest and agrarian change in the Chittagong Hill Tracts region of Bangladesh

Forest and agrarian change in the Chittagong Hill Tracts region of Bangladesh

This chapter examines forest and agricultural land-use changes in the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) region of Bangladesh. The CHT region contains more than 40% of the total forest cover of the country. Although forest resources in the region have been historically important for the well-being of the local population and the national economy, their sustainable use and management remains challenging.
