Abstract

Resilience of forest-dependent communities is an indicator of social sustainability. The goal of this indicator is to provide information on the extent to which communities that depend on forests for their well being; livelihoods; subsistence; quality of life; or cultural identity are able to respond and adapt to social and economic change using definitions and approaches that best reflect each country’s national experiences. The resultant methodology should enable reporting on the health of forest-dependent counties and trends over time.
