SWFLG Briefing Note 11: Forest Enterprise

Abstract

The WCC project is testing an innovative approach to in situ conservation of wild coffee (Coffea arabica) by exploring the potential of Participatory Forest Management (PFM). In this approach the local people are seen as part of the solution, not part of the problem, and are empowered to sustainably manage the forest. This includes devolving forest tenure to community based Forest Management Groups (FMGs) and giving them use rights to non-timber forest products such as coffee, honey and spices. ‘Making the forest pay’ is crucial if communities are to be motivated to protect the forest and its genetic resources. The establishment of three forest product marketing cooperatives aims to support the community by improving their livelihoods, thereby creating motivation to maintain the forest.
