Forest Company-Community Agreements in Mexico

Identifying Succesful Models


Natália G. Vidal - Forest Trends






Agreements between the private sector and local forest communities have been increasingly recognized as a potential solution to problems related to poverty alleviation, the increasing demand for wood products, and the need to increase the part of global forest area that is under sustainable forest management. Mexico represents one of the few countries that have the great majority of their forest resources (more than 80%) located in community lands. Even though communities are the major domestic timber supplier, they usually lack managerial and technical capabilities. Company-community agreements could improve this situation and thereby increase the overall competitiveness of the forest sector, thus benefiting both forest companies and communities.
