Finnfor: Forests and Forest Management in Central America

The Finnfor project is a regional interdisciplinary initiative of CATIE that seeks to strengthen and multiply the ecologically sound, economically competitive and socially equitable use and management of forest ecosystems.

Since 2009, and thanks to Finnish cooperation, Finnfor has been contributing to the elimination of selected barriers to the sustainable production of forest goods and services in Central America, for the welfare of society and the sustainability of the ecosystems.

Its second phase began in October 2012 with the goal of improving the livelihoods of small and medium-size enterprises, producer groups and forest service providers through value chains.
