dc.description.abstractGlobalization and liberalization of markets have created new opportunities and threats for local cornmunities relying in the utilization of natural resources (Mayers and Vermeulen, 2002). Demand for new assets and increasmg local and international demand for existing products can provide considerable possibilities for small forest producers in order to develop their competitive advantages . The threats rise from tbe fact that sniall landowners, especially m developing countries, have to deal with high transaction costs, resulting in limited capacity to access the main markets (Kberallah et al, 2000). Frequently, local producers are not able to take profit of their comparative advantages because of Innited access tu capital, contacts, information and technology (Scherr et al, 2002). This fature of global markets explain the increasing dependence on vertical integration, long-term contracts and coordinated interactions with other market participants, like private enterpnses, NGOs and governmental organizations, in order to succeed (Klrallah et al, 2000). Private enterprises need to reduce costs, share risks and gain access to natural resources through engagement with local actors. They also need to adapt themselves to the increasing pressure of external actors in order to put into practice fair trade and sustainable forest management (Mayers and Vermeulen, 2002). Companies can transfer technology, market-access, resources and skills that communities need in order to develop their competitive advantages (Mayers and Vermeulen, 2002). This reciprocal relation between both market actors originates the concept of companycommunity partnership 2 . In forestiy, this kmd of partnerships comprehends several types of deals, ranging from simple supply contracts to joint managemeni of forests.
