The goal of this toolkit is to help supporters of small and medium forest enterprises (SMFEs) work more effectively. This toolkit is directed to "facilitators", for example donors at the international level and, most importantly, government extension services and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) at the national level. Although this publication has not been made for enterprises, they may find some of the materials in component three useful. The toolkit has been arranged in a series of self-explanatory modules (or tools) for different elements of SMFE support divided into three components. Each of the sixteen modules (or tools) provides step-by-step guidance, followed by practical tips based on our personal experiences. a section pointing the reader to other useful manuals and tools already in existence has also been included.
