This Toolkit identifies common key questions that decision-makers can use to develop or review laws on community forestry. It consists of key points for inclusive, consistent reforms that are conductive to consensus and a series of questionnaires on ten key thematic areas aiming at providing a strong foundation for community forestry-related laws:

  • Land and forest tenure
  • Allocation of community forests
  • Community internal governance
  • Community participation and representation
  • Community forestry management
  • Access to markets
  • Benefit sharing
  • Conflict resolution
  • Enforcement
  • External support
