I am more familiar with the Thai situation.  Charcol harvest is followed 
by anti-biotic intensive shrimp farming resulting in a saline 
wasteland.  Alfredo Quarto is an incredible resource and networker for 
tropical coastline issues

Within his network I have been impressed by Yadfon in SW Thailand for 
their community development work. there is some information on the MAP 
site talking about their community forest strategies.  In particular, 
their forging alliances between poor fisherfolk and poor hillfolk over 
watershed management issues of mutual interest.

Good luck!
