About this book

Global Forest Governance provides insightful legal analysis of the current key policy trends and the challenges surrounding international forest regulation. Global Forest Governance identifies the fundamental legal principles and the governance requirements of sustainable forest management. An analytical model for assessing forest regulation is created which identifies the doctrinal concepts that underpin forest regulation (justice, property, sovereignty and governance). It also highlights the dominant public international institutions involved in forest regulation (UNFF, UNFCCC and WB) which is followed by analysis of non-state international forest regulation (forest certification and ecosystem markets). Global Forest Governance concludes by making a number of practical recommendations for reform of global forest governance arrangements and suggested reforms for individual international forest institutions. Global Forest Governance will appeal to academics, policymakers, international environmental researchers, government officials involved in forest regulation and environmental regulation more broadly.
