Prioritising scarce resources for facilitated support of small forest and on-farm tree enterprises: Proceedings of the third international Forest Connect workshop

Duncan Macqueen, Leianne Rolington Editors

Project info

Forest Connect is an ad hoc global alliance that shares approaches, business models and tactics to support locally controlled forest and on-farm tree enterprises. It ‘connects’ practitioners facilitating such support on the ground.

The third international Forest Connect meeting in Kathmandu was held from 12 to 15 February 2013, hosted by Asia Network for Sustainable Agriculture and Bioresources (ANSAB). It addressed this key issue: how to prioritise scarce resources for facilitated support of small forest and on-farm tree enterprises. This report details the presentations from country-specific scoping studies; a field visit to enterprises in Nepal; and workshop exercises for future prioritisation.

Project information

To restore forests and get out of poverty, rural communities need the knowledge and connections to build flourishing enterprises. Forest Connect aims to reduce poverty and protect forests by better linking locally-controlled forest and farm enterprises, not only to each other, but also to markets, financial and business support services and to decision makers, policymakers and policy processes, such as National Forest Programmes.
