The importance of ownership –
Who owns the problem?
Exercise for communities:
1.What were environmental conditions like when you
were a child? (water, crop yields, soil fertility and

2. What is the environment like now?
3. What will the environment be like for your children
if you do nothing to change the situation?
lack of buy-in by leadership / ADP manager
Too busy / other priorities
lack of funding
not seen as a priority “we are a child-
FMNR not in the AoP
FMNR is a no regrets technology.

Opposition to introducing FMNR may arise from the community, or from individuals in the community. If communities perceive that it is not in their best interests to practice FMNR – perhaps because they think they will lose income from wood cutting or charcoal making, or perhaps if they think the areas will be locked up and there will be nowhere to graze their animals – they will oppose it. In one case, communities thought that WV was going to sell their communal land to investors. Often, farmers fear that practicing FMNR will reduce crop yields.
Some communities may think it is impossible to implement FMNR because they have large numbers of livestock and no spare land. However, if the community is convinced that it is in their best interests to practice FMNR / restore grazinglands and watersheds, there are always strategies for managing livestock which can be agreed on. e.g. - Part of the area can be utilized for grazing while the remainder is ‘enclosed’ for regeneration. - communities may agree to practice ‘cut and carry’ of grasses and to keep their livestock out until the trees are big enough - communities may decide to access other grazing areas temporarily while trees grow.
Burning – either accidental or deliberate destroys young trees and is not compatible with FMNR. Success in stopping burning depends on the community and how much they believe that their future depends on it.
Charcoal making and wood cutting if not managed sustainably will prevent people from practicing FMNR. Unless there is agreement on respecting trees deliberately left for FMNR it is unlikely to be adopted.
Where communities have no legal user rights or ownership rights to trees or land, it is more difficult to convince them to practice FMNR – there needs to be a guarantee that they will profit from their efforts.
An important first step was for the government to grant legal user rights. This ensures communities that they will benefit from any work they do in the forest. This gives them the incentive and motivation needed to do the work without payment – for their own benefit.
A training and forest management plan was developed and agreed to.
Their tree work was so successful that wood markets sprung up where there was only sand before. They charge a membership fee and farmers are paid a guaranteed price for the wood. Profits over and above the guaranteed price are then divided up between the farmer, organizing committee and the forestry department.
