Behind the headlines about the loss of tropical forests n Latin America lies a complex and fascinating story of the social pressures which cause it. Trees, People and Power looks at the various groups, interests and conflicts involved, and explores the repercussions for forestry, the environment and the livelihoods of the rural and urban poor.

Peter Uttig takes a critical look at the experience of forest protection and tree planting n a number of countries and considers how social and political factors affect the feasibility of such schemes. Many environmental projects and programmes have failed to balance concerns for the environment with those of human welfare. Until they do, it is unrealistic to expect any significant progress toward sustainable development.
