CALL FOR INPUT: Governance and economic incentives for reducing the contribution of tropical deforestation to climate change
Experts on governance and forests invite you to participate in a study led by Australian National University on deforestation, decentralization and forest governance. More specifically, they are interested in the perceptions of forest management experts of several issues:
- The agents and causes of deforestation in the country in which you work.
- The relationships between decentralisation, forest governance and deforestation in the country in which you work. This section also asks about your perceptions of the presence or absence of illegal logging and/or corruption in forest management.
- The effectiveness of policies to address forest governance problems and deforestation. Your views are also sought about policies that could work but which have not been implemented, and whether there are any other policies (and what they are) that could be more effective in contributing to reduced deforestation.
The survey is entirely anonymous. No personal data is collected, and there will be no way of identifying individuals from the responses provided.
Participation in the survey should take no more than 25 minutes of your time.
Deadline: December 11, 2011
