Instituto Floresta Tropical

Sustainable Forest Management in Brazil

With this grant the Instituto Floresta Tropical (IFT) will train key forest sector stakeholders in sustainable forest management practices, conduct extension events to promote these practices, and conduct applied research to develop locally adapted Reduced Impact Logging methods. 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.
