Navigating Social Forestry
Interesting open-access paper in the journal Land Use Policy: “Navigating social forestry – A street-level perspective on National Forest management in the US Pacific Northwest.”
• US National Forest management takes place within a vetocratic institutional setting.
• Non-agency actors both constrain and enable forest management.
• A mismatch exists between official policy objectives and institutional regime.
• Resulting decisions are sub-optimal for reaching management objectives.
