Models of business organisation for a market-let approach to community forestry in Myanmar: report of an advisory mission
This report is the result of an advisory mission undertaken in December 2013 by the author, at the invitation of Pyoe Pin.
The purpose was to explore how to put timber centre stage within a market-led approach to community forestry. This report describes that mission and the main recommendations from it. These recommendations include to augment funding to supporting NGOs in Kachin to further pursue forest user group delimitation and formalisation; and to explore further community forestry clusters across the country where enterprise options linked to timber, bamboo, rattan, agroforestry food production, and so on, might be developed.
