In this book, the most important link between trade and environment is tropical timber trade. Timber production is a key determinant of trade in timber products and the most immediate source of timber sector environmental impact. The principle focus of this book is to determine the trade policy effects and impacts of tariff and non-tariff trade barriers to timber trade on the Malaysia s economic growth, using spatial equilibrium model as a tool. Their contribution is much more significant in Environmentally Preferable Products (EPPs) trade, with a share of 45 percent of the world trade and 90 percent of developing countries exports. The key producers in Asia are the Republic of Korea (hereafter Korea ), China, India and Chinese Taipei, while some Southeast Asian countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia are also actively involved in this industry.The major contribution of this research is the policy simulations to determine the trade and environmental impacts on the Malaysia s economic growth such as impacts on macroeconomic variables or GDP items and reducing trade barriers to timber trade policy and sustainable development.

The responsibility with the best use of timber material in Brazil and in the world has required a very specific approach in order to provide insightful conditions that favor its processing and its industrial employment in a sustainable manner. In Brazil, the Brazilian Institute of Environment and Renewable Natural Resources - IBAMA is the defining and regulatory body of this activity for rational conservation, including with regard to the issue of registration of preserving timber products. The Timber Tree-Shaped Structural System - ARROW, object of a of Doctoral Thesis research in the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism from São Paulo University (FAUUSP) is the starting point of this work and the leitmotiv of this book, which is being developed, at the time, in Wood and Structural Timber Laboratory - LaMEM/SET/EESC/USP. From the ARROW several case studies were developed in roundwood profiled, with the most varied functional programs, among them are: single and multifamily housings, research centers, educational centers, cultural units, shelter (stop) bus, trough for cattle, among others.

The present edited book is an attempt to describe different aspects of forests, environment and sustainable development in India. The book covers a broad scenario of forests in the country. The Sustainable Forest Management program in India is one of the largest co-management efforts in natural resource conservation in the world. Apart from providing livelihoods to forest dependent populations, forests provide crucial subsistence needs of housing materials, food, medicine, fuel-wood, small timber and non-timber forest products. Since the colonial era, forest dwellers and traditional stakeholders, including tribal populations have been deprived of forest ownership and usufruct rights. The primary objective of Sustainable Forest Management is to ensure sustainable use of forests to meet local needs equitably while ensuring environmental sustainability and conservation. It is hoped that this study will be found useful by policy makers, experts, scholars and academicians in the field and will be a welcome addition to the literature on forests, environment and sustainable development. This is a timely publication in the sense that it has presented some thought-provoking papers.

The study examined lower grade forest resources classified by early foresters as 'minor' forest resources. The lower grade resources now play major role in sustainable management of our forests due to resource evaluation focus that shifted to species of low economic value as categorized by classical foresters. Emphasis is placed on forest resources utilization shifting focus from timber only to both timber and Non Timber Forest Products(NTFPs)to present another composite picture of the environment and the shift in paradigm from the position of early foresters.

This volume includes four chapters on energy and the environment of Japan, China and Britain and four short book reviews on recent academic works published in Japanese and English. The four chapters cover the following topics: the relationship between deforestation and the development of the silk reeling industry in a district of Nagano Prefecture (central Japan) from the 1870s to the 1900s and the subsequent shift from firewood to coal, the importance of timber supplies for the development of industry as illustrated by a case study on the supply of timber for use as rail sleepers in the Japanese national railway network during the prewar period, a methodological survey of the history of ecology and the environment in China, and an analysis of the British Smoke Nuisance Abatement Act of 1821 as a measure that incorporated the interests of politicians, landlords and industrialists.

This book mainly focuses on the current situation of timber harvesting and transport in Vietnam through the sustainability impact assessment using a set of sustainable indicators covering three aspects including economy, society and environment. Four typical systems of timber harvesting and transport are selected from both plantation and natural forest for the assessment. Based on the results of the assessment, the proposals are given to reduce the negative impacts and enhance the positive impacts of the current activities in timber harvesting and transport towards more sustainability. An optimization with a higher and suitable level of mechanization is carried out for a typical system of harvesting and transport.
