Roots of success: cultivating viable community forestry  

Small forestry was for years half-lost in the shadow of industrial logging. Now, as forests become flashpoints for conflict and a focus for climate concerns, community forestry could be coming into its own. Collective ownership and strategic alliances, for instance, make for sustainability and cooperation. The second in IIED’s ‘business models for sustainable development’ series, this briefing reveals how forest communities round the world are creating a new business model that works.

Key Words: business models for sustainable development, enterprise, forestry, communities, value chain, new green economies
