IWOKRAMA: Using a forest without loosing it
Iwokrama’s Timber Harvesting Model.
All of Iwokrama’s business models are designed to follow international economic, social and environmental best practices and employ innovative governance systems involving various stakeholders.
The Centre will use the results of the research and experience it acquired in Phase I of its operations in areas such as forest dynamics, pre-harvest and post-harvest inventories, community engagement, certification, facilities layout and logistics to help refine and improve operations and forest management in Phase 2.
As with its other businesses, the Centre will replicate its overarching management and sustainability protocols in the timber operations by:
- informing forest policy by providing practical results to policy holders and
- building local, regional and international capacity in areas of sustainable forest management.
