Abstract

Using a long range International Forestry Research Institute (IFRI) dataset, this journal article demonstrates that local enforcement plays a strong role in the success of common property schemes. This relationship holds true even when controlling for a number of factors, such as commercial quality, user group dynamics, and collective action taken in forest management.
