Building Confidence in Forest Management-an integrated approach

Three questions contribute to building trust in forest management: 

  • Is the public aware of proposed plans and activities?
  • Are the public expectations being met through implementation of plans and activities?
  • Is there adequate compliance and enforcement?

Building community and public confidence in forest manager decision-making would benefit from the nesting of instruments associated with answering each of these questions.  Building Public Confidence-A nested approach is proposed using existing instruments.
