Developing new approaches to sustainable forest management in Brazil : Bresil - Projet de gestion des ressources dans les forets inondees (VARZEAS) (Francês)

The Brazilian Amazon is a major source of tropical hardwoods, gross sales of which generate an estimated $1 billion a year. However, most timber extraction occurs in an unplanned and often illegal fashion, damaging the remaining trees, opening gaps in the canopy, and leaving large amounts of debris which make rain forests susceptible to burning. The Forest Resources Management Project ($22.6 million) aims to alleviate this situation by supporting the development and adoption of sustainable forest management systems in the Amazon region.
