A demand study of the priority researchable constraints for four groups of forest-dependent poor people in the management of forest and tree resources in Central America.

Abstract

A demand survey for forestry research was carried out in Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Guatemala during October and November 2000. A total of 83 actors were interviewed in these 4 countries and in Costa Rica, from national NGOs, community-based organisations, government and academic institutions, and from regional research and funding bodies. Semi-structured interviews, group discussions and a literature review were used to identify the principal constraints on poverty reduction affecting 4 target groups:
-small-scale poor farmers
-landless poor families
-artisans, traders and small-scale entrepreneurs
-urban and peri-urban poor families.

The objective of this report is to identify and prioritise issues related to the management of forest and tree resources.
