National system development
As stakeholders develop a Thai national forest certification system suited to the needs of their specific national context, this project will ensure its smooth implementation.
Family forest owners in the Southern US produce 60% of the region's wood fibre, but their rate of certification remains low. This project will make certification more accessible through an innovative landscape management plan.
Forest certification never stands still, and we always look to involve new sectors and enable the certification of new products. Past projects have developed the certification of rubber wood, cork and wild food - in 2016 we entered the world of fashion!
While there is a PEFC endorsed national forest certification system in Korea, low awareness of certification has been a challenge to its widespead uptake. This project aims at changing this.
With South Africa's national forest certification system now PEFC-endorsed, this project will ensure that small-forest owners are able to achieve certification and benefit from the advantages it brings.
