Yale Report into Tasmania's Forest Industry

1 Mar 2007

This report systematically compares environmental forest practice policies in the Australian State of Tasmania with the policies of thirty-eight other jurisdictions, from twenty countries worldwide. The jurisdictions included in this study were selected on the basis of their forest extent and/or importance to global forest products trade.

The Program on Forest Policy and Governance at Yale University’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies was commissioned by the Forest and Forest Industry Council of Tasmania to undertake this study.

The purpose of the Program is to conduct analytical research, teaching and outreach addressing critical global and domestic forest policy issues. The Program takes no position on the appropriateness of any particular policy approach. Instead, it conducts a range of research projects designed to enhance transparency, dialogue and learning about global and domestic forestry challenges.

This report systematically compares environmental forest practice policies in the Australian State of Tasmania with the policies of thirty-eight other jurisdictions, from twenty countries worldwide. The jurisdictions included in this study were selected on the basis of their forest extent and/or importance to global forest products trade.
