RECOFTC launches "Conflict Bibliography"
Natural resources are increasingly at the center of violent and low-level conflicts. Within community forestry as elsewhere, conflict is a particularly destabilizing force. It often undermines efforts to manage forests sustainably and equitably, and can severely and adversely affect the lives of local communities and indigenous peoples.
Through conflict analysis, research and training, RECOFTC builds the capacity of forest stakeholders to better understand, prevent and transform conflict.
In this collation of more than 100 publications, RECOFTC focuses on conflict in the context of community forestry in the Asia-Pacific region, and provides resources ranging from practical case studies and toolkits to publications that explore conflict form a theoretical perspective.
RECOFTC has also released a new Issues Paper focusing on conflict over forests and lands in Asia. The Issues Paper aims to shed more light on how conflict begins; how it affects actors involved; and how it can be successfully managed.
