Is Community Forest Management Good for the Environment and the Poor? â€“ A Review
AbstractOver the last two decades, community-based forest management has graduated from being an experimental strategy to becoming a much more mainstream approach. In developing countries, an estimated 22 percent of forest estate is owned by or reserved for community and indigenous groups. Now a SANDEE review paper looks at the literature to assess whether community-based forest management in countries such as India and Nepal can reduce forest loss and benefit local communities.
