Gwira Banso Joint Forest Management Project



The project was implemented through close collaboration of its two components. One component focused on sustainable timber production and community benefits in their off reserve concession area, including raising awareness on the benefits of growing trees for local farmers. The second component aimed to increase the capacity of individual farmers and local institutions to implement economically, ecologically and socially sustainable land use practices which support forest maintenance and improve rural livelihoods. LTS provided an international Team Leader and specialist in participatory forest management, who was supported by a local institutional development expert and a technical and policy expert.
