During the 1970s it became widely recognised that in developing countries meeting rural needs for forest outputs could be as important as forest protection and meeting the needs of forest industries. This paper reviews arguments and events that led to the decision to pursue this additional dimension of forestry development at that time. It also discusses a joint initiative that FAO and SIDA put in place to help address the needs and issues involved in such a transition in a systematic and focused manner during its early years.
