Methodology for Forest Protection and Development Regulation - Trainer Guide2nd Version, October 2004, Dak Lak

Since 1990 the Government has undertaken a revision of the Law on forest protection regulations with the aim of making local organizations, households and individuals responsible for the protection and development of forest areas in the country. This shift from state managed forest to participatory forest management can be seen in the new guidelines and decrees. It is recognized that the role of local communities is particular important to the management and protection of forest resources. Traditional village forest regulations are in general available and applied in each community. To respond to the new government policies on forests and to the increased responsibility of communities on protecting and managing their forest it has been proposed to assist communities in revising and updating such regulations by themselves to better respond to today government and forest user?s needs. It is believed that if forest users? capacity in managing their forest could be engaged and strengthened, giving shared importance to both timber and non timber forest products, increased benefits could be shared amongst users without depleting forest resources but on the contrary enhancing its productivity.
