This chapter explores the question of why forest-related institutions evolved under non-limiting conditions in Bhutan. It finds that nationalization and protection policies have resulted in two kinds of instability. By increasing the cost of compliance, the government's new forestry strategy has led to non-compliance and increased livelihood risk. There is adequate policy space to address these instabilities, and doing so will certainly increase the probability of both biological and social sustainability of rural livelihoods.

Keywords:   forest-related institutions, nationalization, instabilities, livelihoods, Bhutan
