About this book

A pioneering attempt to consider the concrete policy implications of the much discussed transition to sustainable forestry. It integrates two distinct academic literatures: one that seeks to define and identify ways to implement sustainable forestry, and another that focuses on the relative merits of regulatory and market instruments for promoting environmental values.
