Abstract

The series of draft and finalised Working Papers of the Sida
I
Sarec funded research co­
operation project "People's options on forest land use" has several objectives.
In
conjunction with ongoing field work, the Working Paper serves as an instrument to
make available to national research institutions and other interested parties a preliminary
documentation, directly related to the field work. The Working Papers are used for
workshops and seminars, the objective of which is to discuss and further develop the issues
considered relevant in the national and local context. They are also used as reference
documents in relation to other work with the national authorities at central and local levels.
The Working Papers, especially in draft form, might lack in academic standards and style
and there are only scattered references to other research, but they could still serve the
purpose of developing co-operation and further discussions. The authors warmly receive
comments on the content. Any citation of this paper in research publications is not agreed
upon at this stage without approval by the authors.
In
this paper, Bo Ohlsson is the author of chapter 3.3, 4.3, 5.2-5.4, 6.1-6.4 and Annex B-C.
Mrs R. Kajsa Sandewall and Mrs Tran Thi Binh have written part 3.4, 4.1 and 5.5.
Mats Sandewall has authored the remaining parts and he has also edited the report.
Mr Pham Quoc Hung has run the final scenarios with the Area Production Model, APM.
The work has been co-ordinated and greatly facilitated by Mr Vo Tri Chung.
The principal researchers have discussed and are jointly responsible for the conclusions.
