Abstract

Small tropical island countries are becoming more vulnerable to forest loss due to industrial logging. These countries are mostly of lower socio-economic status and often heavily dependent on logging for economic revenue (Sloan and Sayer 2015). This scenario is highly apparent in the Solomon Islands, where log export alone contributes between 50 and 70% to the country’s annual export revenue (Katovai et al. 2015)
