Abstract: "The increasing awareness of the importance of forestry to the economic, social and environmental well-being of developing countries has prompted international aid agencies and governments to look for new ways to encourage tree farming. One way to do this is to remove the financial constraints caused by lack of credit that make it difficult for small, private landowners to establish tree farms even if the potential profits are large. In conjunction with the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP), the World Bank selected this market-oriented approach for two tree-farming projects. This analysis is based on a survey of participants and interviews with officials."
