Fragmented Forest Policy book
This chapter analyses the implications of the fragmented nature of international forest policies. It explains what is meant by policy and regime fragmentation and presents the existing debate concerning the nature and the origins of the international forest regime and reveals three main features of regime and policy fragmentation. The features include venue multiplicity, venue smallness, and lack of hierarchy. The chapter discusses the concerns ensuing from policy fragmentation and focuses on the assets policy fragmentation might offer. Fragmentation finds its origins in international and in domestic dynamics. Domestic factors provide insight into understanding the path to fragmentation. At the national level, different national administrations are responsible for forest issues. Forests are handled by the Ministry of Agriculture in France and Brazil, the Ministry of Industry in the United Kingdom, the Ministry of Economic Affairs in the Netherlands, and the Ministry of Environment and Forestry in Indonesia.
