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."
