Community Forestry: Local Values, Conflict and Forest Governance

Submitted by robertgnewell on 20 July 2012

Written by Dr. Ryan Bullock and CRC Research partner, Dr. Kevin Hanna, Community Forestry: Local Values, Conflict and Forest Governance provides a critical and incisive examination of community forestry. It explores community forestry as an alternative form of local collaborative governance in globally significant developed forest regions, with examples ranging from the Gulf Islands of British Columbia to Scandinavia. Responding to the global trend in devolution of control over forest resources and the ever-increasing need for more sustainable approaches to forest governance, this book highlights both the possibilities and challenges associated with community forestry implementation. It features compelling case studies and accounts from those directly involved with community forestry efforts, providing unique insight into the underlying social processes, issues, events and perceptions.
