|Abstract:||We look at how Vanuatu’s forests have been used or “managed” over time. Traditional|
lore concerning resource use continues to meaningfully affect contemporary
patterns of forest use, including the most dramatic use to date, large-scale
logging. Aspects of traditional practices were generally sustainable, but current
large-scale logging activities cannot be considered sustainable on social, ecological,
or even timber-yield grounds. In light of this, several options and considerations
for future sustainable forest management are presented, but the role of
customary resource owners, and their traditional lore, is of primary importance
in all of them.
