Title
Determining appropriate forestry extension model : application of AHP in the Zagros area, Iran
Author
Abstract
Determining an appropriate forestry extension model remains as a major challenge if sustainable forest management is a goal. This article was an attempt to show how the analytical hierarchy process can effectively be helpful in selecting appropriate model for forestry extension. The results revealed that the present situation fails to regard the privatized extension as an appropriate model for the Zagros area in Iran. The results also showed while the beneficiaries select cooperative extension system as the most appropriate model, it has no tangible difference with public extension system as the second preferred option. Accordingly, a hybrid forestry extension model was recommended as an appropriate model.
