policy dialogue into results in the
forest requires both political and
organizational commitment, as well
as the use of creative tools and approaches.
Policy topics and tools that are commonly
discussed and that provide an opportunity
to advance sustainable forest management
include climate change, illegal logging, criteria and indicators, trade,
certification, financing mechanisms,
trade, reduced impact logging, concession
management, and domestic linkages. On
this site you may learn more about
each of these policy tools and means,
access web-based links to key resources,
and find helpful practitioners' tips
and case studies to facilitate implementation.
