Value chains for wood products and forest production for permanent income

At CATIE we promote activities aimed at sustainable use of forest resources. The goal is to improve competitiveness in the production of goods and services from the forest in ways that benefit the local population, and we implement this objective by:

  • Supporting the development of wood product value chains in natural forests and plantations, strengthening forestry SMEs and local communities.
  • Strengthening local actors to ensure that forest management and value chains for wood products are integrated into the development plans of climate-smart landscapes or territories.
  • Strengthening of permanent plots for long-term research to improve forest management, innovation and academic development in the conservation and sustainable use of forests.
