An international conference on smallholder and community forest management
This workshop, brought together researchers, policy makers and practitioners. It was a forum for sharing and evaluating global patterns in forest resource use and management by smallholders and community groups to outline the current state of knowledge and identify a course for future research.
- What do we know, and what do we still need to study? What do we need to implement and how? What are global patterns, or similarities and differences across distinct regions of the world?
- Specifically, what role have smallholder forest activities and community forestry played in sustaining forest resources, maintaining environmental services and cultural diversity, improving human well-being or alleviating poverty, strengthening local authority on forest lands and resources?"
