Loggers And Degradation In The Asia-Pacific: Corpo Ration And Environmental Management
by Dauvergne, Peter
About This Book
Concentrating on the period after 1990, the author makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the complex issues that plague the progress for environmental reforms. While explaining what is happening on the ground, Peter Dauvergne highlights the settings within which firms and governments operate.The focus is on tropical forest logging, but many of the insights he brings to the surface are applicable to other activities, such as mining or other businesses where risks to the environment are in conflict with business or governmental interests.
This book provides a fascinating, well-documented and well written account of the rather depressing history of forest protection in the Asia-Pacific region.
