Excerpt: In the Gambia, rural communities began to participate actively in forest management less than a decade ago. This programme, which is guided by a set of principles, is being carried out to address the problems of population pressure on forest areas and their resources. The new forest policy of 1995 and the legislation approved in 1998 permit community forest management and community forest ownership. All five administrative divisions in the country now practise community forestry. It is considered the key to protection and rational utilization of the remaining degraded forest lands and a means of rejuvenating other scrub lands. Community forestry activities are implemented in accordance with certain institutional arrangements. These are guided by a step-wise process to provide mutual confidence between the State and the communities. The process involves start-up, preliminary and consolidation phases. The element of minimum external incentive and the low-input approach from outside donors to the communities make the programme self-sustainable. The communities use indigenous tools and implements to manage their forest with local initiative, and are supported by technical advice from the Forestry Department.
