Managing Forests

We are working with our partners to develop new approaches to sustainable forest management which both conserve vital natural resources and at the same time meet the needs of the poor.

Knowledge drawn from applied research is helping us understand the benefits to women and men of the sustainable use of forest products and the advantages of including people in forest management We are learning important lessons from projects in West Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
