Developing a toolkit for facilitation of support for small forest enterprises: Workshop report – Forest Connect, 2-4 July 2008

Forest landscapes are among the most isolated and marginalised areas in the world, where land, food and energy security and income generation are pressing concerns. Achieving sustainable development in the forest landscape while addressing those immediate needs is a complex challenge that requires joined-up efforts.
