GREEN HOPE PROJECT: AN EXPERIENCE OF FOREST MANAGEMENT BASED ON THE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN GOVERNMENT, LOCAL COMMUNITY, AND TOURISTS
Abstract:The ecosystem in the upper reaches of the Yangzi river basin in Yunnan Province, China (Lijiang area) is suffering a striking decline. With this case as an example, this article will examine how the partnership between the government, local community, and tourists can be developed toward the goal of sustainable forest management, and furthermore, the establishment of a local -ased global community. These findings are based on an on-the-spot inspection carried out by an NGO organized by the authors.
