Community-based Forest Enterprise (CBFE), also known as Community Forest Enterprise (CFE), refers to community-led forest product commercialization, nature-based tourism, or carbon-trade, where individuals, communities, and/or cooperatives extract, process, add value, and market forest resources. In order to activate CBFEs sustainably, community-based forest management is adopted as a win-win approach for enhancing forest conservation while improving the livelihoods of local people.

This policy brief highlights the collective discussions identified from the short-term training course on Community-based Forest Enterprise Development organized from May 31 to June 4, 2021.
