Enhancing local livelihoods and protecting the environment in Southeast Asia and the Pacific
Edited by Maria Osbeck and Marisha Wojciechowska-Shibuya
This publication draws on lessons learned from Indonesia, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea in forest management, community development, indigenous knowledge and access to resources and social networks within the broad framework of the sustainable livelihoods approach. The contents reveal how building workable partnerships among a diversity of stakeholders is fundamental to sustainable development. As the remaining forests rely on dynamic interconnections, so must governments, NGOs and the international community join to meet the challenges of our generation.
