Abstract: From the Introduction: "If there is a solution to the ever more serious problem of tropical deforestation in South and Southeast Asia, in many areas it lies among the large number of people living in 'public' forest zones. Forest dwellers can and must play a role in any credible efforts to stop deforestation and to promote afforestation. Their involvement can be best promoted by, among other things, creating or reinforcing, community-based short- and long-term tenurial incentives for sustainably managing natural resources. At present, however, 'the political will and capacity to begin transferring authority to forest villages remains limited.'"
