Abstract: "Decentralization and devolution are dominant themes in the contemporary discussion of forest policy throughout Asia and the Pacific, as throughout the world, and many countries have now created legislation or policies for implementing these two processes in one way or another. Nevertheless, between the policy and rhetoric and the implementation there are obvious gaps, and there is little conceptual clarity about the meaning of decentralization and devolution. The International Seminar on Decentralization and Devolution of Forest Management in Asia and the Pacific, held in Davao, the Philippines, from 30 November to 4 December 1998, aimed to explore experiences and issues surrounding the implementation of decentralization and devolution approaches in the region. This article reflects on some of the key themes and issues that emerged from the seminar."
