Collaborative Forest Management in Uganda: Policy, implementation, and longevity

Export citation

Collaborative Forest Management (or CFM) has been undertaken in Uganda to address the serious loss of forest that has taken place over recent decades. CFM is seen to provide forest-adjacent communities a chance to participate in and benefit from forest management. As in Malawi, the government has laid a framework which requires the participation of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to implement it. The CFM framework shares many features with ACM, as outlined in this chapter. Using one community as a case, Egunyu has examined the four NGOs that support the implementation of CFM there, and in the process, compares CFM implementation with ACM as reported in the literature. She concludes that although there are significant differences between the ‘ideal forms’ of the two approaches, in implementation, they seem to converge around issues like conflict management, learning, and visioning.
