Successful 20 Years of Community Forest Management in Guatemala Informs an Integrated Community Forest Management Pathway to Support Scaling
This article published by the World Forestry Congress XV (Republic of Korea, 2022) summarizes the Rainforest Alliance’s work in the Maya Biosphere Reserve in Guatemala, our learnings, and our approach to scaling up community forestry. This paper aims to spark discussion about the guiding principles of integrated community forest management. The Rainforest Alliance invites partners from private sector, public sectors, and civil society to review and provide constructive feedback about our interventions, hold us accountable and help us innovate. We are inspired to make the coming years a time of successful ecosystem protection and restoration together.
