Forestry management and water law

comparing Ecuador and Arizona

Abstract

This article compares public–private partnerships dedicated to improving forestry management to protect water in the Paute River basin in Ecuador (FONAPA) and the Verde River basin in Arizona (the Four Forest Restoration Initiative). Both programmes create incentives for improved forestry management and suggest lessons for water management in general but may face legal challenges that require reforms. While there is scope for mutual learning between the programmes, such cross-fertilization is inhibited by differences in the legal status of water and forest resources in the two systems.
