* Examines the links between woodcarving and deforestation, conservation, and international trade with case studies from Australia, India, Africa, and Mexico
* Highlights the vital importance of traditional industries to rural economies: more money and jobs are generated per unit of wood in woodcarving than in any other part of the timber industry
* Part of the cutting-edge People and Plants series

Much has been published on the impacts of logging in tropical forests for timber, but relatively little has yet been written about the effects of felling hardwood and softwood trees for commercial scale woodcarving enterprises. "Carving Out a Future" is the first thorough examination of the international woodcarving trade and its critical links to rural livelihoods, deforestation, biodiversity and conservation, forestry and forest policy, and the international trade regime. A range of case studies from Australia, India, Africa, and Mexico provide 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 fair trade so that skilled artisans in developing countries get a fair economic return.
