The Forest Governance Learning Group is an informal alliance of in-country groups and international partners currently active in eight African and three Asian countries. We aim to connect those marginalised from forest governance to those controlling it, and to help both do things better.
In 2011, the team expects to: analyse implications of current and proposed scenarios and institutional framework for REDD implementation in Uganda; develop a policy briefing paper on alternative models for benefit sharing in forestry, to ensure community participation and benefit; finalise the study on illegal timber trade and initiate a public / media campaign (that also reaches rural audiences); review previous studies and existing regulatory framework for charcoal burning and implications for forestry and trade; and promote corporate social responsibility in the oil and gas industry related to forest and biodiversity
conservation in the Albertine Graben in Uganda (and bordering countries).
