A New Agenda for Forest Conservation and Poverty Reduction: Making Markets Work for Low-Income Producers

Sara Scherr, Andy White, and David Kaimowitz

The dominant forestry models are increasingly inappropriate… A fundamental re-assessment of the role of forests in rural development, and the role of local people in forest conservation, is urgently needed. The authors of this title lay out a set of strategies to promote forest market development in ways that positively contribute to local livelihoods and community development in low- and middle-income countries.
