Collection: Forestry and Communities FRAME Community Archived Resources

by Carmen Tedesco last modified Jan 10, 2013 11:41 AM
Community Forestry is a growing trend worldwide. Tenure instruments, new managment roles for communities, economic opportunities to harvest and manage timber and non-timber forest products are just a few of the issues that impact community forestry. The communities, government officials, NGOs, the private sector, research institutions, and financial institutions all participate in the evolving community forestry process. In the Philippines a number of efforts have been operating to assist community forests with resource management, interaction with the government, and in economic development in non-timber and timber based forest products as well as agroforestry. Through the FRAME project, a rattan value chain study was completed and a workshop held for the various actors involved in the rattan sector. An output of the rattan workshop was to launch a community of practice centered around forestry and communities to continue the collaborations forged at the rattan workshop and to discuss new issues as they arise, for example the 2006 cancellation of IFMA, ITPLA, SIFMA and CBFMA tenure agreements by the DENR and the issuance of new guidelines for the implementation of upland agroforestry.

The new Upland Agroforestry Program (UAfP) allows qualified Filipino individuals, organizations, corporations, cooperatives, association, NGOs, etc. to apply forestlands of 50 hectors and above in order to establish and develop agroforestry farms and plantations. Applicants need to show proof of financial and technical capability to undertake agroforestry development activities. All agroforestry projects under the UAfP will also be covered by a warranty on land tenure to be signed by the President.This article is part of the Forestry and Communities Archived Community of Practice.
