Bhs. Indonesia: Akhir-akhir ini media massa menerbitkan laporan mengenai program penghutanan kembali. Ini merupakan inisiatif yang patut dipuji.

Potret Kerumitan Pengelolaan Hutan

Bhs. Indonesia: Di banyak negara, gejala yang muncul keluar adalah penyelenggaraan negara yang buruk mengakibatkan kerusakan pada hutan dan lahan, dan tonggak dari ekspresi publik mengenai pemerintahan yang korup adalah pada perjuangan perimbangan akses ke sumberdaya alam.

English: In many countries the most visible symptom of bad governance has been the abuse of forests and land, and the lightning rod for expression of public dissatisfaction with corrupt governments has been the struggle for equity in access to natural resources. It was therefore no surprise to find Indonesia’s nascent environmental organizations at the forefront of the barricades during these tumultuous days in May 1998 that led to the overthrow of the Soeharto regime.

It goes to show how much importance Indonesians place on their nation’s relationship with Australia.

‘Socialistic’ operations hurt forests Canada underprices timber: report. Academic stresses access to resources, sustainability, rather than privatization

A report on the world’s forests, presented yesterday during the World Forestry Congress in Quebec City, notes two-thirds of the global supply of industrial wood comes from 15 per cent of forested land that is intensely managed.
