PhD student Alejandro Mora-Motta publishes article on tree plantations in Chile

RLC PhD student Alejandro Mora-Motta (Bonn and Valdivia) published an article on "Tree Plantations in Chile: Towards a more sustainable model". The article addresses Chilean pine and eucalyptus plantations and the restructuring of forestry policy from extractivism towards a more sustainable model. Mora-Motta argues that the practical and discursive elements of forestry policies offer opportunities for a new expansive phase of plantations.
