Abstract Community forestry involves different stakeholders with diverse perspectives and interests in series of decisions and translating these decisions into actions. In decision-making processes, information plays an important role, but information perspectives differ across the users with different social status defined by economic class, caste and ethnicity, gender, education and access to an ,executive position'. People holding an executive position and those without it have conflicting views on the provisions of power sharing and access to information and resources. There are differences in perceiving and evaluating different qualities of information at various levels of policy processes, and what higher policy makers might think is important quality of information for community forest user groups may no longer be valued by the users. This paper explores multiple realities related to information in community forestry through comparative case studies and suggests that more facilitative, interactive policy process are desirable in securing a higher level of informed decisions
