Toward Integrated Social Forestry

(p.235) Eight Toward Integrated Social Forestry
Rich Forests, Poor People

This chapter considers some of the prospects for a program of constructive change in the management of Java's forest. The most recent social forestry program in Java aims to release some of the state's traditional controls and to engage forest-based communities in the management of the forests. The ultimate question is: Can it work? The chapter discusses the role of the state in developing the social and natural environment; the structure of access to the “new” social forestry program; problems within the access structure; structural factors precluding the involvement of the poor; ideological obstacles to successful social forestry projects; and the potential for an administrative solution to the development of a forest village.

Keywords:   forest management, Java, social forestry program, state control, forestry policies
