  • Presents major theoretical concepts and gives an overview on the evolution of the development paradigms during the last decades
  • Describes the present state of various elements of rural life and shows the implication and challenges for development
  • Presents innovative solutions and approaches of how forests can drive development, both theoretically and based on practical case studies

This book provides an overview of the complex challenges and opportunities related to forest-based rural development in the tropics and subtropics. Applying a socio-ecological perspective, the book traces the changing paradigms of forestry in rural development throughout history, summarizes the major aspects of the rural development challenge in forest areas, and documents innovative approaches in fields such as land utilization, technology and organizational development, rural advisory services, financing mechanisms, participative planning, and forest governance. It brings together scholars and practitioners dealing with the topics from various theoretical and practical angles. Calling for an approach that carefully balances market forces with government intervention, the book shows that forests in rural areas have the potential to provide a solid foundation for a green global economy.
