About this book

&i;`On economic and social justice grounds, as well as for biodiversity conservation and environmental management, this is a rare and extremely useful analysis of forestry issues, given growing domestic and international concern over the status of Indonesia's forests.'&o; Larry Fisher, Cornell University

'The asset stripping of Indonesiai? s forests is laid bare in this book, as is the current opportunity for the government of Indonesia to introduce change in response to the demands of the population...Which Way Forward is highly recommended for those interested in forest policy at the local, national and international level. It represents a unique overview of the forestry sector of Indonesia and is a must for anyone considering working in the forestry sector of Indonesia, or indeed anywhere in South East Asia.' International Forestry Review
