Title: Administrative Support in Collaborative Forest Restoration
Author: Esch, B.
Subject: Administration, Collaboration, Forest Restoration
Abstract: The Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Pro-gram (CFLRP) has helped the U.S. Forest Service and collaborative groups overcome some of the financial barriers to national forest restoration by providing ad-ditional funding for restoration projects. Yet CFLRP funds cannot be used to support the collaborative group process or administration, and group members find that increasing collaboration and restoration plan-ning requires a significant investment of coordination and organizational effort. It is generally recognized that administrative support is crucial to the efficient functioning of a collaborative group. Without con-sistent sources of funding or specific guidance on how to manage administrative support, CFLRP groups have had to develop their own approach to meeting these administrative needs.
