Museo de Historia Natural, Herencia
Sustainable forest management developed and practised in four pilot communities in Pando, Bolivia including: 1) diversification of NTFP resource collection and marketing; 2) agroforestry adapted to regional socio-economic context, contributing directly to poverty alleviation and biodiversity conservation; understanding of economic incentives for sustainable forest management and maintenance of ecosystem service values increased at a range of decision-making levels from community to governmental.
