  • The authors compare forest management of large concessions to that of smaller communal forests.
  • The authors describe a shift in forest management from the state to a more local and participatory framework at the level of the commune.
  • Finally, the authors speculate whether this decentralization of power over the forests will result in more sustainable management practices for Central Africa tropical forests.
