DescriptionThe aim of this project is to develop the tools and incentives to help small forest managers, communities and NTFP collectors in the tropics to identify and protect biodiversity in the forests they manage (the 'Target Forests') through certification, whilst continuing to meet their own management objectives. The project will take place in three contrasted tropical countries in order to develop and test the tools in a range of situations. The tools will then be disseminated internationally through a series of regional training courses for groups developing and promoting certification standards in at least 10 tropical countries.
Implementation StatusProject under implementation.
