Title: Protect Forests, Raise Incomes, Supply Energy
Summary: Deforestation and household energy needs in poor countries are often closely linked, and legislators can alleviate both with creative policymaking. An innovative program in Senegal has simultaneously redefined forestry legislation, preservation techniques, and the trade of household fuels. The process started by empowering local communities to manage a large share of the country?s forest resources. They were then taught how to supply city dwellers with firewood and charcoal in an ecologically sustainable way.
