About this book

Community-based forest management (CBFM) has become an essential component of any comprehensive approach to forest management that seeks to address the conflicting claims of different interests on forest ecosystems. In this volume, Nicholas Menzies looks at communities in China, Zanzibar, Brazil, and India where, despite differences in landscape, climate, politics, and culture, common challenges and themes arise in the shift from government forest management to CBFM. Menzies draws on published and unpublished case studies, project reports, and his own rich experience in his analysis of how CBFM fits into the broader picture of the sustainable management of natural resources. A critical companion for students, researchers, and practitioners, Our Forest, Your Ecosystem, Their Timber provides a singular resource on the emergence and evolution of CBFM.
