Indonesia contains some of Asiai? s most biodiverse and threatened forests. The challenges result from both long-term management problems and the political, social, and economic turmoil of the past few years. The contributors to Which Way Forward? explore recent events in Indonesia, while focusing on what can be done differently to counter the destruction of forests due to asset-stripping, corruption, and the absence of government authority. Contributors to the book include anthropologists, economists, foresters, geographers, human ecologists, and policy analysts. Their concerns include the effects of government policies on people living in forests, the impact of the economic crisis on small farmers, links between corporate debt and the forest sector, and the fires of the late 1990s. By analyzing the nationi? s dramatic circumstances, they hope to demonstrate how Indonesia as well as other developing countries might handle their challenges to protect biodiversity and other resources, meet human needs, and deal with political change. The book includes an afterword by Emil Salim, former Indonesian Minister of State for Population and the Environment and former president of the Governing Council of the United Nations Environment Programme. A copublication of Resources for the Future and the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and the Institute for Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS).

Reviews for Which Way Forward: People, Forests, and Policymaking in Indonesia

'The asset stripping of Indonesia's forests is laid bare in this book, as is the current opportunity for the government of Indonesia to introduce change in response to the demands of the population...Which Way Forward is highly recommended for those interested in forest policy at the local, national and international level. It represents a unique overview of the forestry sector of Indonesia and is a must for anyone considering working in the forestry sector of Indonesia, or indeed anywhere in South East Asia.' International Forestry Review
