What Does it Take? The Role of Incentives in Forest Plantation Development in Asia and the Pacific
This document is a compilation of case studies from different countries on the incentives and their impact on plantation development in South and Southeast Asia. The countries addressed are Australia, China, India, Indonesia, New Zealand, The Philippines, Sabah (Malaysia), Thailand, and the United States.
Conclusions & Takeaways
Incentives can be indirect or direct. They can be small such as the provision of free seedlings or large such as tax relief for investors in reforestation. While these case studies do not specifically address native species for reforestation, they provide useful historical explanations of forest plantation investments until the document was written in 2004.
