Supporting community forest management in the Brazilian Amazon


ITTO has long encouraged sustainable community forest management as a core part of its work. A good example of its support features in a new video in Portuguese, “Community forest management: a sustainable alternative for the Maués State Forest”, produced by ITTO project PD 454/07 Rev.3 (F). The project is helping 19 local communities in the Maués State Forest in the Brazilian Amazon to implement good forest management by strengthening community organization, building capacity in the preparation of sound forest management plans, and improving skills in running community forest enterprises.
