Introduction: Developments in forest management over the past decade have focused on progress towards Sustainable Forest Management (SFM), an approach that balances environmental, sociocultural and economic objectives of management in line with the ?Forest Principles?1 adopted at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in 1992. Parallel efforts in environmental conservation, particularly within the framework of the Convention on Biological Diversity, have led to the development of the Ecosystem Approach (EA) as a framework and holistic approach for the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity and its components in all types of ecosystems. This paper traces the development, since UNCED, of these two concepts. A comparative analysis of the concepts is presented, illustrating the extent to which they are similar and/or compatible. Suggestions for their full integration are also provided.
