Abstract

Development assistance efforts in recent years have focused on forests as "safety nets" for low-income forest dwellers. These efforts emphasize access to forest resources for the poor to meet their subsistence needs. But much less has been done to help local people exploit their forest assets in a sustainable manner to take advantage of the opportunities (and to cope with the pressures) of growing demand for forest products.
