Introduction: Some Basic Remarks on Sustainable Forest Management, Environment and Global Ethics

  • Conceptions and implementation of SFM are based on different theoretical approaches of ‘conservation’. They imply various dimensions of development and a broad range of interests, perspectives, values, and philosophies of the individuals and collectives affected and involved (political, religious, economic, social, theoretical, etc.). Globalisation and global change makes this already complex relationship even more intricate. Down-to-earth approaches to SFM primarily have to describe their underlying theoretical assumptions, ethical values, and operational and political goals. Otherwise, they run the risk of being sound in theory but not applicable in practise.
