Communities now own or manage one fourth of the forests in developing countries. Within the forestry sector, certification, eco-labelling and social auditing have served as the main consumer instruments to date. High hopes for forest livelihoods and poverty reduction have surrounded their use but each has had its limitations.

This report outlines some of the options for building this momentum and enhancing local returns from responsible forestry.
