RECOFTC's introductory brochure

In the Asia and the Pacific region, around 450 million local people rely on forests for their livelihoods to some degree. Community forestry enables local people to secure longterm rights to use and manage forests sustainably, and to maximize the livelihood benefits they receive from those rights. It also helps them to develop local institutions that allow participation in forest management and the interests of all community members to be taken into consideration.
