    Ce rapport de FERN rédigé par la spécialiste en droits fonciers Liz Alden Wily documente la situation au Gabon pour informer sur, entre autre, les discussions en cours concernant FLEGT et REDD dans le pays.  Le rapport commence par un regard historique sur le Gabon.  En 1899 virtuellement la Gabon tout entier était attribué aux compagnies françaises d’exploitation forestière.  Avant cela, le Gabon endura près de deux siècles d’un régime commercial des plus développés en Afrique au sein duquel des clans locaux se mirent au service du commerce international d’esclaves et de ressources.

    We draw on empirical results from three case studies of property rights change across forest and fisheries ecosystems in central Vietnam to investigate the circumstances under which collective property rights may make sense. A
    generic property rights framework was used to examine the bundles of rights and associated rights holders in each case, and to assess these arrangements with regard to their contextual fit, legitimacy and enforceability. The cases illustrate the interactions between private and collective rights to lands and resources, and the

    "The main argument for community forestry, in the context of climate change, is that it responds to multiple interests.  Forests, and in particular community forestry, represent a bundle of assets and benefits. They serve as a safety net in times of hardship and support critical ecosystems required for well-being.  The cases point out that while the contributions of community forestry to mitigation are well-recognized, in the case of adaptation, community forestry is equally well placed to support adaptive capacity, but this is not automatic." - Regan Suzuki

    The management of Asia’s forests affects diverse stakeholders and interests, inevitably resulting in conflict. This study focuses on conflicts between local communities and outsiders: the underlying causes, conflict management approaches, and eventual outcomes. Field data was collected through interviews and focus group discussions in seven community-outsider conflict cases across five countries.

    While many direct conflict triggers were observed, at least three underlying and interrelated factors enabled conflict:
