dc.description.abstract "The main concern of forestry administrations must be to find ways of transferring enough power and security to local communities to make it worth their while to devise and sustain effective management and in ways which make them fully accountable to those objectives themselves. Recognition of this is emerging in the region, evident in the greater attention being paid to developing community-level institutions who can take on such powers. Such devolutionary strategies are gaining ground through wider forces of democratisation. The writer argues that the long-standing existence of legally recognised government agencies at the village level in Tanzania has been an important factor in the greater progress made in that state towards establishing genuinely devolved forest management. She also calls for policy-makers and donors to encourage countries to exchange views and experiences." en_US
