Regional and international forestry related organisations and collaboration: the way forward?
In the past decade the leaders of the 35 small island nations with developing economies have found the political resolve to act together and thus in aggregate to overcome the constraints of the three elements that describe them:
they are small in area so they usually lack natural resources (but conversely they do not lack human resources which place increasing stress on those natural resources)
they are islands isolated from developments in the continents to which they belong (although that isolation may attract tourism and often attendant problems)
their economies are in development (which implies that they lack economic clout, and are easily overlooked – unless of course they have some strategic importance which can, like tourism, be a mixed blessing).
