This report comprises the proceedings of an international workshop held by the Program on Forests at the World Bank (PROFOR), October 19-21, 2003 in Washington DC. Forests provide multiple benefits such as goods and services important to people's livelihoods, economic growth, foreign exchange earnings, and environmental services. The range of actors involved in the production and consumption of forest-based goods and services include governments, private industry, local communities, individual forest owners and their associations, and nongovernmental organizations. But too often the state formally manages, regulates, and prices these forests as an undervalued capital resource subject to the control of certain politically powerful groups and individuals. The design of instruments to implement forestry policy, including forest fiscal systems, consequently needs to take into account the multiple roles involved in forestry and the political process of directing toward the same overall goals a large number of actors with diverse and sometimes conflicting objectives and vested interests.
