Detail : eBook Edition: 2009

The area of industrial tree plantations is expanding in the global South. Vast areas of monocultures have been established to feed raw material to the pulp and paper industry.

It demands an end to financing business as usual in the plantations and pulp and paper sector, and an end to development “aid” to the sector.(From Author)
