Abstract The Chainsaw Milling Project is using multi-stakeholder dialogue (MSD) as its key strategy for achieving its objectives. In Guyana the dialogue process aims to achieve a shared understanding of chainsaw milling practices and associated opportunities for economic development at local level. It aims to build consensus among stakeholders to reduce the level of conflict and illegality related to chainsaw milling by local communities; and review regulatory frameworks in order to strengthen governance in the forestry sector. So far the MSD in Guyana has focused largely on addressing chainsaw milling opportunities and challenges at local and regional level. To maximize its effectiveness the dialogue is in the process of being upscaled to a national level. Narratives, personal experiences and lessons from the MSD at the local level were felt to be useful in support of this endeavour. To that effect project staff and other stakeholders have written “stories” that show the different dimensions of their work but with a common message: this multi-stakeholder dialogue is of key importance for those who make a living out of the forest, for now and in the future. This book contains their stories.
