Growth and Yield Modelling Framework



The project aimed to develop knowledge and generic tools for yield regulation of natural forests in tropical developing countries. LTS facilitated a process to ensure local stakeholders participate in decisions related to future allocation of timber harvested from local forests. The work aimed to develop sustainable utilisation of forests and more equitable distribution of benefits. A pilot study led to a model and illustrated that by embarking on a sensible yield regulation process and using a simple toolbox it becomes feasible for management to integrate resource information rapidly and easily and assess what quantity of timber can be feasibly cut, and weaknesses in information collection and management will be exposed that should be remedied.
