The challenge of indigenous forest management: from information to implementation

, : The challenge of indigenous forest management: from information to implementation. Southern African Forestry Journal ( 178): 47-52

The closed canopy indigenous forests of South Africa and other SADC countries tend to be fragmented and represent a scarce resource in terms of the increasing demands on them from commercial and subsistence use and demographic pressure. This paper demonstrates how relevant information is used in the pursuit of management objectives for these forests by the South African Department of Water Affairs and Forestry.
