Modernizing Nature

This chapter explores the forest management agendas and environmentalist ideologies of colonial forestry as expressed at the Empire Forestry Conferences during the first half of the 20th century. In keeping with the broad structure of the conference deliberations, the discussion comprises two parts: the ‘classical’ problems associated with paradigm articulation, and the policy dilemmas posed by agro-forestry challenges such as shifting cultivation and soil erosion.

Keywords:   Empire Forestry Conferences, shifting cultivation, soil erosion, colonial forestry
