This chapter summarizes the result of a study on parallel concepts for forest conservation that have emerged during recent times in order to cope with new trends and challenges in sustainable forest management (Sayer and Maginnis, 2005). The findings reveal an unexpected level of progress in the use of ecosystem approaches in many of the countries studied. Major shifts in forest management policy and practices have seen conventional, commodity production–oriented approaches replaced by more holistic, people-centred ecosystem-level approaches. In many ways, ecosystem approach practice has moved ahead of the theoretical discussions going on within international forest dialogues. However, there are real practical and institutional obstacles to its widespread application in the world's forests.
