A report about opportunities and challenges for sustainable forest management – FAO FORESTRY PAPER 173
This report look at the reality of multiple-use forest management. It is based on case studies in the Amazon Basin, the Congo Basin and Southeast Asia, and a Web-based survey. The result shows that some patterns are global but that there are also regional peculiarities. This review gives new insights into how to improve multiple-use forest management plans and practices on the ground, and how to use the concept to promote stakeholder dialogue on a range of policy, institutional, technical and social issues.
The report is the product of a collaborative effort led by FAO and the Center for International Forestry research.
