Abstract

This study is a policy assessment contrasting forestry reforms and their intended objectives against the state of the forestry sector in Bolivia, Honduras and Nicaragua. The study finds that there is a gap between policy objectives and the state of forestry in the three countries, and that the policy frameworks are characterized by lack of policy implementation and intrinsically flawed design. In other words, reform failure matched by failure to reform is present in each country. The Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers followed, and possibly reinforced, existing policy trends but they were unable to solve the implementation problems and lack of coherence that mark the policies of the sector.Cette étude est une évaluation de politiques mettant en contraste les réformes forestières et leurs objectifs d′une part et l′état de l′industrie forestière en Bolivie, au Honduras et au Nicaragua, d′autre part. L′étude constate un écart entre les objectifs de la politique forestière et l′état des forêts dans ces trois pays et montre que les cadres politiques sont caractérisés par une absence de mise en œuvre des réformes, et par une conception intrinsèquement imparfaite. En d′autres termes, dans chacun de ces pays, à l′échec des politiques s′ajoute un manque de réformes. Les Documents de Stratégie de Réduction de la Pauvreté ont suivi, et peut être renforcé, les tendances politiques déjà existantes mais n′ont pas pu résoudre les problèmes liés à la mise en œuvre et au manque de cohérence caractérisant les politiques concernant le secteur forestier.
