Forestry Case Studies. Appropriate Technologies for Development. Case Study CS-3.
Case studies of Peace Corps forestry projects in Morocco, Nepal, the Philippines, Chile, Guatemala, Chad, Liberia, and Niger are presented as a guide in aiding future forestry programming efforts. Each case study includes: (1) general information about the specific country; (2) an overview of forestry programs and efforts in that country; (3) a description of relevant Peace Corps forestry programs; and (4) a discussion of the success and failure of those programs. (Success and failure as used in this document refer to whether a program succeeded in meeting or failed to meet its objectives.) The document concludes with a discussion of several factors that determine the success of forestry programs. These include the amount and kind of support given to projects and volunteers from the host governments and other agencies, the amount of commitment that the Peace Corps gives to the project, the legitimacy of a need for Peace Corps involvement, the history of the host country's involvement in forestry, the possibility of short-term benefits, and the amount of local interest and commitment.
