Sustainable forest management (SFM) has been at the forefront of efforts to involve civil society, private industry and the state in the development of new regulatory approaches, such as forest certification and voluntary standards (Mackendrick, 2005). SFM exemplifies 'the
increasing tendency for collaboration in many sectors where political and economic trade-offs also exist' (Overdevest, 2004). The work of scholars who have emphasized the importance of collaborative arrangements in contemporary governance was particularly useful (Kooiman, 2000). So too was the pioneering research of early advocates of SFM (Lammerts van Beuren and Blom, 1997). This research was in response to calls from the forest research community to maximize the potential for criteria and indicators as a means of conceptualizing, promoting and reporting SFM (ITTO, 2015).
