Abstract

This presentation discusses a study of the impacts of Uganda's forest sector governance reforms on rural livelihoods and sustainability. "Improved rural livelihoods and sustainability are among the expected outcomes of forest sector governance reforms. There is limited empirical evidence of the impact of reforms, particularly at the household level. There are often trade-offs between achieving favorable livelihood outcomes and sustainable forest management; are there conditions that favor both?"
