This paper uses an example from Guadalcanal Province to illustrate deep-seated problems in the logging industry and associated community conflicts nation wide. It provides a thorough analysis of the causes of logging related conflicts and identifies the current gaps to resolving them. The paper goes further by identifying responsible people and institutions that could ensure the underlying causes are dealt with and recommend strategies for positive change.
