Territorial Forest Management Chair



We promote the assessment of forest ecosystems and their comprehensive utilization, subsequent incorporation and recognition as part of living strategies and economies of major social sectors, and their sustainable management in the context of processes for governance that can contribute to integral human development.

The chair has evolved in response to trends and needs that are evident in the work environment from an approach centered on the diversified management of tropical forests, taking into account biological, social and economic perspectives toward work on aspects of governance, policies, strategies and management platforms at regional and national scales, but supported by the technical aspects of forest management for multiple purposes.

At present forest management is analyzed under a holistic and ecosystemic framework, from a territorial or national policy perspective as well as from the perspective of forest ecosystem management. Research and experience on governance in territories has been strengthened through the responsibility of the chair in the presidency and management of the Ibero-American Model Forest Network, its participation on the Reventazón Model Forest directorate and its support to the Chorotega Model Forest, two initiatives in Costa Rica.

Model Forests are social platforms for sustainable territorial land management that in turn incorporate other specific strategies and initiatives such as biosphere reserves, biological corridors, protected areas, private owner and communal management groups for forests, water or other goods and services of ecosystems, forming an ideal opportunity to promote the participation of the forest in the construction of human development.
