    Abstract

    This chapter examines forest and agricultural land-use changes in the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) region of Bangladesh. The CHT region contains more than 40% of the total forest cover of the country. Although forest resources in the region have been historically important for the well-being of the local population and the national economy, their sustainable use and management remains challenging.
