ONLINE RESOURCE: Improving Equity and Livelihoods in Community Forestry
A website developed by CIFOR and RRI on “Improving Equity and Livelihoods in Community Forestry” provides a compilation of more than 35 publications based on research on community rights and forest tenure reform in Latin America (Bolivia, Brazil, Guatemala, Nicaragua), Asia (Nepal, Philippines, India, Laos) and Africa (Ghana, Cameroon, Burkina Faso). The site includes a number of country-based publications (country reports, policy briefs, journal articles) as well as a few regional pieces (two Latin America reports, one from Africa). The site also includes a global Infobrief summarizing some of the key findings (in French, Spanish and English), a couple book chapters and the full Spanish translation of the book "Forests for People: Community Rights and Forest Tenure Reform".
