Forest management has changed significantly across Asia and the Pacific over the last few decades, marked with a continuous shift from state forest control toward local forest management. As a result of this ongoing forest tenure reform process, forest ownership is more diverse and access to resources has increased with more stakeholders involved.

However, successful forest tenure reform requires adjustments in regulatory frameworks and governance to ensure stakeholders are able to participate, know their rights and understand and fulfill their responsibilities. To achieve these results, practical guidance is crucial at national, sub-national and community levels for stakeholders and other actors involved in forest tenure reforms.
