46. The business side of sustainable forest management: Small and medium forest enterprise development for poverty reduction
  Wednesday, January 31, 2007  by Admin
  Indigenous communities have long been managing tropical forests and have increasingly gained legal access to the resource base. Only recently, however, have they started to form small and medium forest enterprises (SMFEs) which represent a promising option for poverty reduction and forest conservation through sustainable forest management. This paper argues that there are still significant challenges to the development of viable SMFEs and that government and non-governmental agencies, as well as the SMFEs themselves and their business partners, have important roles to play in the process.
