Fuelwood and charcoal preparation
An illustrated training manual on simple tools and techniques for small-scale enterprises.

Fuelwood and charcoal are major sources of energy in many developing countries. In those countries which face an acute shortage of energy, efficient methods of production are of vital importance. If the greatest possible use is to be made of natural resources, and if fuel shortages are to be eased and eventually overcome, wasteful production methods must be avoided.

This training manual is a completely revised and enlarged version of an earlier manual on charcoal preparation. The various methods for preparing fuelwood are presented step by step, and are supplemented by numerous illustrations which make the manual ideal for a wide market.

Equipment planning guides for vocational and technical training and education programmes
No. 17: Forestry, by S.M. Saarilahti

For a number of years there has been an increasing need in both developing and industrialised countries for guides on planning and ordering equipment for vocational and technical training and education programmes. The ILO therefore publishes a series of equipment planning guides in respect of various occupations. The guides contain illustrated lists of equipment, model workshop layouts, common conversion factors, price lists and alphabetical indexes of item captions in English, French and Spanish. The information contained in these guides should prove invaluable to: government departments and national institutions in the developing countries; national project directors, teachers, instructors, chief technical advisers, experts, consultants, etc.; purchasers in developing and industrialised countries; firms in developing and industrialised countries; and teachers and instructors everywhere.
