Community Forestry in Canada : Lessons from Policy and Practice (Reprint) (Paperback)
about this item
This book brings together the work of over twenty-five researchers to provide a comparative and empirically rich portrait of community-forestry policy and practice in Canada. Tackling all of the forestry regions from Newfoundland to British Columbia, it unearths the history of community forestry across the nation, demonstrating strong regional differences tied to patterns of policy-making and cultural traditions. Case studies reveal innovative practices in governance and ecological management but also uncover challenges related to government support and market access. This book also considers the future of the sector, including the role of institutional reform, multi-scale networks, and adaptive management strategies.
