Abstract: The need to improve forest governance as an important prerequisite for promoting sustainable forest management and reducing deforestation and forest degradation is widely acknowledged. To make governance better work for people and forests is not an easy challenge due to divergent interests and mind-sets and imbalanced power relations and unequal access to information, decision-making, resources and benefits. The 29 articles in this ETFRN News showcase a rich diversity of examples of how forest governance have been addressed in various settings. This issue brings together experiences from a wide variety of forest governance reform initiatives. Some relate to new lessons from relatively well established approaches to forest governance reform, such as community forestry; others relate to more recently developed approaches, such as FLEGT and REDD+. The articles show that international instruments — such as FLEGT, forest certification and more recently, REDD+ — have been and are important drivers to address governance in the forest sector.
