This book provides a wide range of information about Afghanistan's
forest types, cover, diversity, and explains the phenomena of
continued deforestation, its consequences, and the environmental
challenges. The author, Lutfullah Fareedzai detailed the
historical, political economical, and cultural factors and events
that fully explain the unending destruction of the forest. He also
documented the war that has turned Afghanistan's forests from that
of a well-wooded land into one of the worlds most disastrous forest
areas, with its forests cover and wildlife habitat reduced to a
mere fraction of its former extent. He further proposed strategies
on how to combat illegal logging and deforestation, restore and
enhance the forests and wildlife conservation, improved forests
management, and environmental governance. The author draws his
conclusions from well-researched case studies around the world that
highlights the range of prospects. The book will be of great value
to researchers, students, environmental agencies, and those who are
actively working on forest policy and governance. This is a book
that stands to make a difference.
