Abstract

This report presents a body of new evidence on the opportunities for a more diverse and equitable forest economy which balances conservation, timber and wood-based production and industry, non-timber production, harvesting and trade and new ecotourism or ecological service enterprise. A renewed forest economy must reconcile the demands for national economic growth and the needs of forest communities and marginalized to remain relevant. This opportunity is linked to a tenure transition that supports strong local governance and forest resource tenure and rights, balancing multiple interests and stakeholders, through legal pluralism and nested, or multi-layered, tenure regimes.
