|Special Public Works Programmes - SPWP - Planting Trees - An Illustrated Technical Guide and Training Manual (ILO - UNDP, 1993, 190 p.)|
This manual has been prepared as part of the forestry programme of the Industrial Activities Branch of the International Labour Office (ILO), a programme which aims at the improvement of productivity, working conditions and training in this industry. Previously one illustrated training manual on ergonomics - Fitting the job to the forest worker - and one on nursery management - Tree Nurseries - have been published.
This publication was prepared in accordance with a request formulated by the Second Session of the Forestry and Wood Industries Committee in April 1991. In the Conclusions (No. 15) concerning future ILO activities in the field of forestry and wood industries, the Committee stressed that ILO should place great emphasis on support of training programmes and assistance to forest workers and management. It is also an input to the technical cooperation programme and in particular to the Special Public Works Programme. It replaces SPWP Training Element and Technical Guide Number 7, Planting Techniques. Financial support was provided by the Policies and Programmes for Development Branch of the Employment and Development Department, ILO. It was written by Kicki Johansson, ILO Industrial Activities Branch, and illustrated by Anja Laengst, external collaborator.
