CATIE: an ally in the sustainable management and conservation of forests

From CATIE (Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Center), through research and education, we seek to contribute to the territorial management, conservation and sustainable management of forests in Latin America so that the region can benefit from the multiple goods and services offered by these landscapes, especially to the populations. 

With our work in forestry, we meet the needs of the countries of the region in the area of forestry in order to improve human well-being, and in this way we have impacted hundreds of thousands of people in Latin America. In addition by developing integrated research at different levels, we have been able to make a decisive contribution in the region on issues of protected areas, biological corridors and sustainable forest management.

We do this under five lines of work:

 

CATIE is an academic center for innovation and sustainable development in topics related to agriculture, management, conservation and sustainable use of natural resources. Our area of influence, by mandate, is the Latin American and the Caribbean region. In our actions we combine education, research and external projection to promote Inclusive Green Development, with the aim of increasing human welfare and reducing rural poverty. We are leaders in the integrated management of agriculture and natural resources to address global challenges.
