Tree Products in Agroecosystems: Economic and policy Issues

J. E. M. Arnold

Report/paper, 21 pages

The paper does not deal with production systems that take place wholly within the forest - namely systems based on shifting cultivation on forest land, or forest land which is locally owned but operated for forest outputs rather than agricultural inputs - as these are influenced more by policies and practices related to the use of forest land and forest resources than by agricultural policies and practices. It does, however, review trends in the use of, and rural reliance on, forest products; examine the role of CPRs as a source of these products; and characterise trends in the growing and management of trees in farming systems. Throughout, the impact of national policies and of programme and project interventions on these two sectors is examined in the respective sections.
