Wars have impacted on forests for more than 3000 years, often with devastating effects. Forests, more specifically, the exploitation of their resources, particularly timber, have facilitated many recent military conflicts, with dramatically adverse effects. 

This MSc thesis examines the effect of armed conflicts on forests, focusing on south-western Uganda, through a literature review as well as data from interviews with Ugandans who lived through the Rwandan conflict.
