There is considerable anecdotal evidence that insurgent groups opportunistically use forests as advantageous terrain for guerrilla warfare and as a source of finance, mostly through taxing logging companies. This chapter presents these opportunistic dimensions and the links between forests, rebellions and forest-dwelling populations. Examples from Burundi, Cambodia and Liberia are provided.

Keywords:   forests, timber, logging, Burundi, Cambodia, Liberia
