Nevertheless, it should be recognised that this legislation followed major floods after decades of unheeded warnings of the risks of excessive utilisation of the forests. A more recent example is in Thailand, where landslides and floods followed widespread replacement of forests by agriculture and plantations (Hamilton 1992). The major issue for minimising risks from 'natural hazards' is therefore how to ensure stable forest cover, particularly when this has been lost through human action, extreme events, or a complex mixture of these.

This multi-functionality has long been present in most mountain forests, even when they have primarily been managed for sustained harvests of timber. A useful summary of these two different perspectives is given in Table 1 (Jodha 1992).
