Develop ecosystem management policies and processes that benefit your community and its environment! Understanding Community-Based Forest Ecosystem Management examines the emergence of community-based ecosystem management (CBEM) in the United States. This comprehensive book blends diverse perspectives, enabling you to draw on the experience and expertise of forest-based practitioners, researchers, and leaders in community-based efforts in the ecosystem management situations that you deal with in your community. Understanding Community-Based Forest Ecosystem Management delves into the major topics that will help build common understanding of CBEM, including: * linking stewardship to the unique role that local communities and workers can play in its implementation * developing social and institutional processes that are more open, democratic, and civil * empowering communities to strengthen their participation in natural resource management * addressing power imbalances * improving understanding of worker issues and promoting an ecosystem workforce * advancing laws and policies that promote the collaboration and coordination that are needed for long-term stewardship ...and more! Healthy ecosystems and community well-being go hand in hand. The interdependence between the two is the focal point of community-based ecosystem management. Take advantage of this state-of-the-art reference and information source for scientists, community groups and their leaders, resource managers, and ecosystem management practitioners. The information you'll find in Understanding Community-Based Forest Ecosystem Management will be invaluable in your effort to manage and maintain the ecosystems in your community.
