This book begins with the premise that there is an inherent tension between the global flow of forest products and local forest management. The partnerships that have been created to mediate this tension have considerable social and environmental effects. The volume describes these effects in 13 case studies with an introductory chapter that readers will find useful. The contributors express their concern about risk and conflict management in partnerships, the retreat of the neo-liberal state, and power differences, as these topics apply to arrangements spanning a wide range of geographical scales: deals involving communities and private companies, communities and NGOs, multi-sector partnerships, and partnerships built on political advocacy.
