Abstract

This paper provides an overview of the trends in forestry financing in South Korea. The financial mechanisms for public investment in the use and conservation of forest resources in South Korea are described. Some specific examples such as direct investment, lump sum payment to forest-dependent peoples, loans and subsidies, and tax breaks for private forest owners are discussed. The experiences of South Korea in financing forest management are critically discussed in order to draw lessons, which can guide future policy on public investment in the forestry sector.
