Amazonian Forests and Climate Change

Management of non-timber resources in the Amazon forest, a climate change adaptation and mitigation strategy from the Bolivian and Peruvian experience.

Objective

To promote the sustainable management of non-timber forest resources as a strategy that helps generate the conditions required for integrated and sustainable forest management, as a basis for climate change adaptation and mitigation of the Amazonian communities of Bolivia and Peru. Based on this, we hope to contribute to the development of sustainable Amazon forest management models that favour climate change adaptation and mitigation.
