This independent study traces the lessons of Grenada’s participatory policy process, which resulted in a shift away from policy based on the preoccupations of foresters, politicians and foreign consultants, towards a recognition of stakeholders’ values. The process revealed that major forest values were environmental services, and agricultural and recreation support systems, rather than timber as before. The report analyses context, actors, policy processes, policy contents, and impacts, and identifies ways to implement that policy, based on a continuing participatory approach.
