There is broad consensus that community-based forestry (CBF) conservation, backed up by supportive governance arrangements, can play an important role in reducing poverty and restoring ecosystems. The working paper, published by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), aim to support policymakers’ efforts to assess which CBF approaches and tenure arrangements also contribute to national and higher level objectives, and therefore contribute to the implementation of the SDGs.
