Accomodating Multiple Interest

 

 



 

 
 
Sharing Innovations
 The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) in collaboration with the East-West Center sponsored in 1999 a competition to bring attention to innovations promoting shared learning that allows diverse interests in forest management to adapt to changing environmental and social circumstances. We identified nine outstanding "stories" of how adaptive, collaborative management is working in practice and invited practitioners to report on the lessons they have learned from using ACM-types of approaches, the outcomes of its application, and innovations for overcoming the constraints to its use.
  
Community Representation
 It is often assumed that having a community representative in a meeting or decision-making body concerning resource management assures that the communities' interests are being met. The purpose of this research is to show why most community representation in resource management processes has not been effective.
