From Deficiencies to Syndrome: A Case Study of Policies in Practice
Having addressed the core claim of the FTDS through linkages of the limitations of the global and national policy measures in the two previous chapters, it is necessary to examine the practical outcome at the local community level. This chapter therefore traces the consequences of these policies through case studies by investigating conditions and circumstances which fortify the central claim of the research with cases from the High Forest Zone (HFZ). In the five cases (each reflecting one of the five transitional pillars) investigated, the aim is to highlight the way policies discussed above play out in the operational level, national and the local actors involved, their viewpoints and real-life stories in relation to how they frame management problems, the way some actions are justified and how these justifications are validated contrary to the forest transitional endeavor.
