Summary: It is not enough to protect forests by simply marking off conservation areas. Policymakers must draw on a range of regulatory and market-based instruments to ensure forests use is sustainable. Parliamentarians working on this issue could look to Cameroon. The central African country has reshaped its protected area network and forestry industry with a reform package that mixes transparency, private concessions, and sustainable forest management.
