Humphreys, D. (1999). National Forest Programmes in a Global Context. In: Formulation and Implementation of National Forest Programmes: Vol. 1 Theoretical Perspectives (Gluck, P.; Oesten, G.; Schanz, H. and Volz, K.- R. eds.), EFI Proceedings, European Forest Institute, Joensuu, Finland, pp. 53–69.



The paper reviews some of the key international and intergovernmental processes on forest conservation and related issues since the 1970s. Consideration is given to the main actors involved in such processes, including their ideological positions. Three inter-related notions of justice are examined. Attention is given to the International Tropical Timber Organisation, including its relationship with the CITES, and the Forest Stewardship Council. The findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Forests are briefly examined, including the debate under programme area V on the question of a global forests convention.
