Ecological Criteria and Indicators for Tropical Forest Landscapes: Challenges in the Search for Progress Ecology and Society
Sheil, Douglas; CIFOR (Center for International Forestry Research); d.sheil@cgiar.org; Nasi, Robert; CIFOR (Center for International Forestry Research); r.nasi@cgiar.org; Johnson, Brook; NCBA (National Cooperative Business Association); bjohnson@cs.com.
In the quest for global standards, “Criteria and Indicators” (C&I) are among the foremost mechanisms for defining and promoting sustainable tropical forest management. Here we examine some challenges posed by this approach, focusing on examples that reflect the ecological aspects of tropical forests at a management-unit level and assessments such as those required in timber certification. C&I can foster better forest management. However, there are confusions and tensions to reconcile between general and local applications, between the ideal and the pragmatic, and between the scientific and the democratic. To overcome this requires a sober appraisal of what can realistically be achieved in each location and how this can...

The Value of Tropical Forest to Local Communities: Complications, Caveats, and Cautions Ecology and Society
Sheil, Douglas; CIFOR (Center for International Forestry Research); d.sheil@cgiar.org; Wunder, Sven; CIFOR (Center for International Forestry Research); S.Wunder@cgiar.org.
The methods used to value tropical forests have the potential to influence how policy makers and others perceive forest lands. A small number of valuation studies achieve real impact. These are generally succinct accounts supporting a specific perception. However, such reports risk being used to justify inappropriate actions. The end users of such results are rarely those who produced them, and misunderstanding of key details is a concern. One defense is to ensure that shortcomings and common pitfalls are better appreciated by the ultimate users. In this article, we aim to reduce such risks by discussing how valuation studies should be assessed and challenged by users. We consider two concise, high-profile valuation papers here, by Peters and colleagues...
