About this title

Synopsis:

Despite the vast number of books and reports on tropical deforestation, there's confusion about the causes of forest loss and forest poverty, and the effectiveness of policy responses.

'At Loggerheads' seeks to describe ways to reconcile pressures for agricultural expansion in the tropics with the urgent needs for both forest conservation and poverty alleviation. It diagnoses the causes and impacts of forest loss and the reasons for the association of forests and poverty. It looks at how policies―modulated by local conditions―act simultaneously on deforestation and poverty, creating tradeoffs or complementarities, depending on the situation. The report brings to the surface problems that impede adoption of favourable policies, describing institutional and technological innovations that might help overcome these impediments.

Review:

"Partially diagnostic, partially prescriptive, the volume is true to its subtitle and priced to sell [...] this book is far and away the best available treatment of the globally critical issue of tropical forest conservation. If widely read, it could transform into effective action the current rage of finger-pointing about who is to blame. [...] At Loggerheads? is not the final word on tropical forest conservation, but I believe that it will stand as the principal reference on this topic for the next several years." --Jack Putz, University of Florida, Conservation Biology, December 2007
