Introduction

"Community-based forest management (CBFM) or community forestry (CF) is now becoming a global phenomenon. Bull and White (2002) report that globally some 420 million hectares (ha) (11%) is now in some form of community managed or administered system. The proportion of community-owned forest in developing countries is reported to be around 22%, and with the current trend the figure is expected to reach 45% by 2015. Of the 370 million ha of forests conserved by indigenous communities worldwide, almost half, 170 million ha, is in Asia"
