As an outcome of this grant, the newly established Brazilian Forest Service, state government managers, industry employees, and community members will implement sustainable forest management in two Forestry Districts, in the Calha Norte and along the Transamazon Highway. This grant will also strengthen IFT as an institution, enabling it to play a stable and expanded role in the development of sustainable forest management in the Brazilian Amazon.
