The way forests around the world are managed is undergoing radical change. In the UK, local communities are buying forested land, to preserve forests for the greater benefit of society. In the developing world, forestry commissions are actively empowering villagers to engage in forest management and conservation. The video tracks on this album use case studies in the UK and in India to illustrate ways in which forest management is changing, and how such changes can be implemented. To complete the album, Open University academic Giles Mohan explains why the case studies were selected and unpicks some of the issues that emerge. This material is taken from The Open University course TU870 Capacities for managing development.
