"This book provides extremely valuable examples of the problems facing the governance of tropical forests. More importantly it details how these challenges might be resolved. It will help researchers, managers and policy-makers see beyond the rhetoric to concrete actions." - Dr. John Innes, Professor and Dean, Faculty of Forestry, University of British Columbia

"This volume represents a sobering 'reality check' for those hoping for quick improvement in forest governance - not least in the interest of climate change mitigation and adaptation - through collaborative research and action bridging local communities and state actors." - Frances Seymour, Director General, CIFOR

'"n this book arising from carefully coordinated research in five countries, Carol Colfer, Jean-Laurent Pfund and their research collaborators explore the complex, muddled realities of landscape governance with honesty and evident empathy for rural communities. That they produce no simple recommendations is no surprise - but their conclusions are thoughtful, and the path to them full of local insights." - Jane Carter, Intercooperation - Swiss Foundation for Development and International Cooperation

"The book argues argue that involving local people is critical to addressing global climate change and alerts readers to some of the recurrent realities encountered in such efforts" - Anthropology News
