Policy that Works for Forests and People: Real prospects for governance and livelihoods

James Mayers, Stephen Bass

Book/Report, 356 pages

Poor forestry policy has led to a pattern of common problems across many countries including the loss of natural forests and lack of access for poor people. Based on world-wide research, this book is the most authoritative study to date of policy processes that affect forests. It provides a thorough analysis of the issues, options and factors that determine different outcomes. This book offers practical advice on how to formulate, manage and implement policies appropriate to different contexts with a major annex containing tools and tactics. These are real policies that work for both forests and the people whose livelihoods depend on them.
