The Impact of Commercial Forest Areas on Nearby Rural Communities in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe

by Lovemore Marisa

The history of Zimbabwe is characterised by struggles for control and ownership over resources. This project analyses participatory decision-making relations that exist between forest companies and nearby communities. Arguments running through the study are that commercial forest companies must not merely target economic returns at the expense of community needs and priorities; and that restricting the involvement of the rural poor in the management of resources tends to result in their mismanagement and in the escalation of conflicts.
