Developing a toolkit for facilitation of support for small forest enterprises: Workshop report – Forest Connect, 2-4 July 2008
This workshop report summarises country level progress in eleven Forest Connect partner countries. It also describes a participatory process to identify what guidance might be most useful for teams supporting small forest enterprises - the foundation for future toolkit modules.
To restore forests and get out of poverty, rural communities need the knowledge and connections to build flourishing enterprises. Forest Connect aims to reduce poverty and protect forests by better linking locally-controlled forest and farm enterprises, not only to each other, but also to markets, financial and business support services and to decision makers, policymakers and policy processes, such as National Forest Programmes.
