An assessment of the underlying socio-economic causes of deforestation, using a specially developed, integrated model to analyze forestry and land-use, and to examine the consequences of different policy alternatives. The results show how policy measures limited to dealing only with timber which is internationally traded are doomed to fail in slowing down deforestation processes, and that only measures which address the interests of those immediately affected will have any success. A crucial survey and analysis for policy makers, practitioners and researchers.
