The article develops the different mechanisms relating forest resources to conflict with case studies such as Burma and Cambodia. It looks at the empirical relationship for the onset and duration of conflict at the country level and finds very little support for a general and direct relationship. A shortest distance to the coast tends to make the conflicts in forested conflict zones longer.
