Way Out of the Woods is an accopunt of how the success of forestry and agroforestry projects in three countries (Nepal, Kenya and Bolivia) depends on understanding biological, social and cultural diversity and applying this knowledge to meet the needs of rural people.

The solutions to sustainable management lie in using local and scientific knowledge. This knowledge illuminates the path out of darkness, the metaphorical place deep in the woods, where the ability to see forward and beyond the tress is restricted.
