    The dependence of smallholder farmers on forest resources for their sustenance and livelihoods is a major driver of deforestation and degradation of forest resources in tropical countries. Understanding the socio-economic drivers that aggravate the extraction and overexploitation of forest products is vital for designing effective forest conservation and restoration measures. This particularly holds with regard to the importance of two fundamentally opposing motivations of smallholder forest exploitation, which we label “wood extraction for need” vs. “wood extraction for greed”.

    September, 2014
    Indonesia

    Land degradation has been a major political issue in Java for decades. Its causes have generally been framed by narratives focussing on farmers’ unsustainable cultivation practices. This paper causally links land degradation with struggles over natural resources in Central Java. It presents a case study that was part of a research project combining remote sensing and political ecology to explore land use/cover change and its drivers in the catchment of the Segara Anakan lagoon.

    Interest in farmland is rising. And,
    given commodity price volatility, growing human and
    environmental pressures, and worries about food security,
    this interest will increase, especially in the developing
    world. One of the highest development priorities in the
    world must be to improve smallholder agricultural
    productivity, especially in Africa. Smallholder productivity
    is essential for reducing poverty and hunger, and more and

    deterioration in local food security, environmental damage,
