Together with its partners, Stichting Probos has been working on the selection, technical research and introduction of a number of lesser known timber species from Suriname. The project aimed to improve the business case for sustainable forest management in Suriname by creating a market for lesser known species and thus increase the economic value of the forest. During the implementation of the project, Probos learned valuable lessons. In this Forest Report (Probos’ article series ‘Bosberichten’) we share the most important ones.
