Forest Lives

Lessons on sustaining communities and forests from the small grants programme for operations to promote tropical forests

SGPPTF shares 15 lessons from work with 247 partners in 1,000 villages in 8 countries through the regional synthesis paper entitled, “Forest Lives”. Four cross-cutting themes characterize these lessons: 1) Coping with resource uncertainty, living with social change, 2) Strengthening local forest governance, 3) Supporting practice through policy and collaboration, and 4) Sustaining livelihoods.
