Data for the Forests and Livelihood Community

International Forestry Resources and Institutions (IFRI) Dataset

The International Forestry Resources and Institutions (IFRI) research program was founded in 1992 by Elinor Ostrom and her colleagues at Indiana University. IFRI focuses on how local groups, communities, and indigenous populations manage and govern their forests and trees. This online version of the IFRI database contains a subset of the most important IFRI research variables with broad relevance to those interested in community forests.
