Introduction
The forest manager in a developing country is faced with an enigmatic situation. As a trustee of an important resource, he is under obligation to perform his function in the developmental machinery and introduce efficient management conforming to the overall national deTelopment. On the other hand, he has to cater to the traditional use rights and privileges of an overwhelmingly rural population. This calls for a nanagement pattern which should meet the preset needs and wants of the people and leave enough room for the accommodation of new demands which are likely to arise as the socio-economic situation improves. Multiple use forest management may be an adequate answer to this enigmatic situation » This system was developed in an era when the United States of America was passing through a transitional stage of an economic revolution » It is elastic enough to meet the requirements of diverse situations. By no means is it an end in its elf | but it is a better means to achieve a co-mpromise between conflicting forest useso In this paper, I shall endeavor to discuss the possibility of its appli cation to under-developed countrieso Section I of this paper deals with the forest resources of the developing countries. Their socio-economic and forestry problems are discussed in Section II. The principles and practices of multiple use management are given in Section III, Effort has been made in Section I ? to ascertain the possibility of the application of multiple use manage ment to the forest resources of under-developed countries.
