Justice in the forests – a series of short films
International Institute for Environment and Development, 2011

Produced by the Forest Governance Learning Group, a network of teams in ten countries in Africa and Asia who believe that solutions to forestry problems lie in increasing the power of local people to make informed decisions over how forests are managed, this series of short films shows how small teams can have a big impact in tackling forest governance. They collectively make the case that for long-term sustainability it is necessary to put social justice centre stage, and in practice, this means investing in locally controlled forestry. An online discussion on the content of the films, locally controlled forestry and country-specific success stories will be held on Wednesday, 4 May, 1:00-2:30 pm (British Summer Time).
