Data from nine countries on forest management and use within industrial timber concessions are studied in depth in this report. Despite the fact that (with some exceptions) there are few reliable data on the impact of logging activities on forest resources or on revenue streams, the study clearly shows that demands on forest lands are growing at an unprecedented pace, and that without progress in specifying property rights, conflict over forest lands is likely to increase. It concludes that there is no evidence either that industrial-scale forest concessions deliver a sustainable system of natural forest management in unlogged areas or permit sustainable natural forests in logged-over areas.
