Villagers as Forest Managers and Governments 'Learning to Let Go': The case of Duru-Haitemba and Mgora Forests in Tanzania
Report/paper, 32 pages

Given appropriate rights and access to benefits such that they could effectively assume their responsibilities as forest managers, two communities met the challenge of achieving sustained, effective control of the use of the forest.
