This paper describes how five communities have, over eighteen months, become the active guardians of a large miombo woodland in central Tanzania, a forest which was in danger of disappearing through uncontrolled wood extraction, shifting cultivation and settlement. In sharing authority over the management and future of the forest, not just the right to use, the Mgori case represents a significant innovation, and one that goes considerably further than most joint forest management initiatives elsewhere in the developing world.
