Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungIn its search for cheap wood to supply raw material, today's pulp and paper industry is throwing its net every wider across the world. One of the more disturbing results is the spread of fast-growing pulpwood plantations in the forests, pastures and farmlands of the South.
InhaltsverzeichnisPlantations, pulp and paper: introducing pulp and paper; emergence of a global system; social and environmental effects; actors behind the scene; managing resistance. Tree plantations in the South: Brazil - the eucalyptus pulp giant; Chile - a model imposed by a dictatorship; Uruguay - "forests" in the grasslands; South Africa - a fibre exporter with few forests; Indonesia - deforestation, plantations and resources; Thailand - from "reforestation" to contract farming; looking to the future.
