Community Forest Management Planning: a field guide for Cross River Stare, Nigeria, a step-by-step approach

This is one of two manuals that highlight resource mapping as a tool for community forest management and protected area planning.  This manual draws on the experiences of Cross River State and involves a step by step methodology that ensures community mapping is used in a systematic process that allows local people to develop their Community Based Forest Management Plan. It is written to accompany a training activity so that many of the points and tips are to remind the trained facilitator how to proceed and what to think about at every stage.
