  • Distinguishing community forest products in the market: industrial demand for a mechanism that brings together forest certification and fair trade

    Distinguishing community forest products in the market: industrial demand for a mechanism that brings together forest certification and fair trade

    Little evidence links commercial forestry with poverty reduction. But community forest enterprises, especially those that are democratically run, are perceived to have brighter prospects.

  • Private Sector Forestry: A Review of Instruments for Ensuring Sustainability

    Private Sector Forestry: A Review of Instruments for Ensuring Sustainability

    The private sector is an increasingly dominant player in the production of wood, and the market is the main way in which wood products are distributed. Yet, for other forest goods and services such as non-timber forest products, biodiversity, and carbon storage, markets are often not effective. Worse, government and policy failures mean that the private sector's wood production activities often degrade the production base for these non-wood ...
