dc.description.abstract "This paper analyzes participation and benefit sharing in four community forestry programs in India. The research presented in this paper takes a theory driven empirical approach to participation in community forestry programs. The study examines the impact of the economic status and organizational trust on participation in decision making and implementation. The analysis is based on a sample size of two hundred respondents from four programs. A structural equation analysis is done to test the different hypotheses. Findings show that as the participants' economic level increases their involvement in implementation decreases. As trust in the community forestry program increases, participation in decision making increases; but participation in implementation decreases with increasing organizational trust. Olson's theory explains how private goods (associated with participation in decision making) and public goods (associated with participation in implementation) shape the involvement of individuals from different economic and social strata in collective action." en_US
