Forest community development: illegal activity, human right or matter of corporate responsibility?

Limited rights and access to natural resources and declining forest resources leave local communities few other livelihood options but to engage in activities that yield immediate economic gain, particularly illegal logging activities, and convert forest lands for other purposes (e.g. oil palm) that can provide quick cash income. This, in turn, leads to further degradation of natural resources, resulting in the erosion of the support basis for sustainable livelihoods.
