Abstract:Introduction of CBFM reconfigured relations of power surrounding forest access, use and management in ways whose net effect was to undermine forest conservation. Reliance on village forest committees created elitist, unaccountable, and corrupt village bureaucracies. Alienated, many communities withdrew their labor and support for CBFM. Therefore, how power is exercised was a major factor in CBFM success. Scholars and policy makers should look beyond institutions, seek broad-based community empowerment, and build leadership skills of local leaders so that they can balance the wielding of power among various CBFM actors.
