Towards commercially oriented community forestry management: coping with economic globalisation and commercialisation

Towards commercially oriented community forestry management: coping with economic globalisation and commercialisation

Past and current community forestry (CF) management practices have not successfully improved the livelihoods of forest communities. There have been limited options for expansion and optimising economic forest benefits to lift these communities out of poverty. One recent challenge is the rapid development of economic globalisation and commercialisation. There are serious challenges in translating opportunities under globalised and commercialised economics into policy and socioeconomic incentives that benefit local communities.
