The objective of the Symposium was to examine the issues associated with developing policies to encourage small-scale forestry. Over eighty delegates attended from twenty countries and some fifty presentations were made. From the papers presented it is apparent that there is a wide range of potential ways to encourage small-scale forestry including:


  • Forestry assistance schemes;
  • Development of decision support systems;
  • Research support for key issues;
  • Joint venture arrangements;
  • Removal of market impediments; and
  • Provision of tax incentives.
