Forest Management Learning
Group:
Building Forest Users’
Capacities

The Forest Management Learning Group (FMLG) is a learning and capacitybuilding process, which uses non-formal adult education methods, based on experiential learning techniques and participatory training methods. The learning process aims at building forest users’ capacity for developing community silvicultural practices and creating an opportunity for shared learning between rangers and communities to generate new silvicultural knowledge that answer local needs. In situations where planning systems allow, silvicultural practices can be incorporated into the community forest management plan.

The approach gives much less emphasis on targeting forest users with preset extension messages, and gives more emphasis on improving users’ capacity to analyze their forest management systems and practices, and developing and testing possible solutions that address forest production needs.

The FMLG process is based on the
successful experience of the farmer
field school (FFS) approach
developed by the Food and
Agriculture Organization-
Integrated Pest Management
Program (FAO-IPMP) in rice
production in the region. The FFS
approach on rice cultivation
showed that farmers can become
experts in ecosystem analysis and
can make informed decisions
about the necessary interventions
from both ecological and
economic points of view.
