Understanding Community-Based Forest Ecosystem Management delves into the major topics that will help build common understanding of CBEM, including: linking stewardship to the unique role that local communities and workers can play in its implementation developing social and institutional processes that are more open, democratic, and civil empowering communities to strengthen their participation in natural resource management addressing power imbalances improving understanding of worker issues and promoting an ecosystem workforce advancing laws and policies that promote the collaboration and coordination that are needed for long-term stewardship ...and more! Healthy ecosystems and community well-being go hand in hand. The interdependence between the two is the focal point of community-based ecosystem management. Take advantage of this state-of-the-art reference and information source for scientists, community groups and their leaders, resource managers, and ecosystem management practitioners.
