Carving out a future

Forests, livelihoods and the international woodcarving trade

Anthony Cunningham, Bruce Campbell, Brian Belcher

    Research output: Book/ReportEdited BookResearch

    Abstract

    Very little has yet been written about the cultural or economic contributions of woodcarving to people's livelihoods or the consequences of felling hardwood and softwood trees for the international woodcarving trade. Carving Out a Future is the first examination of this trade and its critical links to rural livelihoods, biodiversity, conservation, forestry and the international trade regime.

    A range of case studies from Australia, Bali, India, Africa and Mexico provides a lens for examining the critical issues relating to the significant impacts of woodcarving on forests, conservation efforts, the need to promote sustainable rural livelihoods and efforts to promote trade so that skilled artisans in developing countries get a fair economic return.
