There are laws which regulate the timber industry in the Solomon Islands. These laws aim to reduce some of the environmental and social impacts that can result from logging. This booklet aims to summarise some of these regulations, including some important aspects of the Code of Logging Practice, and is intended to help communities and logging companies to have a clear overview of the regulations that protect communities and the environment.
