DescriptionThe most important forest resources of the Asia-Pacific region are the highly diverse rain forests. Utilization of the resource is a natural and inevitable consequence of the region's socio-economic development. The sustainable management and development of forest resources in the region can be achieved by implementing conservational forestry, which is based on blending Eastern wisdom and philosophy with Western expertise and technology. The most urgently needed technology in the region are cost-effective, integrated forest inventory and monitoring systems, information management and decision-support systems, and non-wood forest resources assessment and valuation systems. The conservational approach to forest management can have major beneficial effects in conserving resources and maintaining biological diversity.
