People Managing Forests: The Links between Human Well-Being and Sustainability | Resources for the Future | Published : 2010


Access to resources implies some distribution of these resources among stakeholders, and the concept of sustainability inevitably incorporates an intergenerational element. If we want to sustain forests as well as the people within and around them, we must think in terms of the future-perhaps examining the past in our efforts to gain such understanding. We use data collected in various forest-rich and forest-poor contexts to assess two issues: the sharing of benefits among stakeholders and intergenerational equity.
