Loggers and Degradation in the Asia-Pacific: Corporations and Environmental Management (Cambridge Asia-Pacific Studies)
Peter DauvergneISBN: 052100134X;
Corporate loggers have irreparably damaged much of the tropical forest throughout the Asia-Pacific over the last four decades. Despite a steady rise in global and local concern, few firms have changed their practices on the ground. This study examines why and how loggers have resisted and ignored calls for environmental reforms. Concentrating on the period after 1990, it explains what is happening on the ground as forests continue to disappear and highlights the structures within which firms and governments operate and make money. The volume takes a constructive, insightful approach to a depressing, yet urgent, problem.
