    DescriptionThis book analyzes the wide range of issues that should be taken into account in forest-related legislation. It stresses that forest law must be understood in the context of the broader legal framework governing land use and land tenure, as well as international obligations related to trade, environmental protection, and human rights. The book also pays significant attention to institutional arrangements and governance practices relevant to forests, including decentralization, transparency, and law enforcement. The authors draw extensively on experience from around the world to provide tools for dealing with various forest management challlenges. The authors are experts in the field of forest law.

    Review quote
    "The book will provide a welcome resource for anyone working on legal reform related to the forest sector. While acknowledging that good law is not a sufficient condition for sound forest management, the authors make a convincing case that modernizing forestry legislation is a necessary step towards meeting forest-related objectives."
