The Guidebook introduces Participatory Action and Learning (PAL) as a way of addressing a
number of these issues by providing an approach for both Forest User Group (FUG) members and forestry field staff to learn together from the process. They jointly identify forest management issues, initiate actions to address those issues, monitor the results of the actions and the process
used, and then reflect upon the results to determine future actions. The approach to community forest management planning, if applied through the process being suggested in this Guidebook, can make a positive contribution to sustainable livelihoods, particularly through enhancing the natural capital of FUG members; social capital – particularly of poorest households; human capital through better forest management skills and to a certain extent financial capital through increased levels of FUG funds. Participatory Action Learning is therefore a critically important tool.
