Forest Tenure Reform in the Age of Climate Change - Lessons for REDD+

Resource

Summary

This article examines two issues that present risks for local communities: rights to forests and rules for resource use. It draws on the findings of a study conducted by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) on forest tenure reforms in selected countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America from 2006 to 2008. The study underlines the numerous obstacles faced by communities after rights are won.
