In the age of global climate change, resource use and management practices that rely on the use of fire and thus emit carbon are coming under increased pressure.

Thus, in the name of forest conservation and development, colonial and post-colonial governments in Asia have since more than a century devised policies and laws seeking to eradicate shifting cultivation. The reasons usually given ...
