Projects to Protect Guatemalan Forests
The Rainforest Alliance promotes four conservation programs in the Petén jungle.
Tuesday, November 2, 2010
Rainforest Alliance stated that Peten forest losses represent almost 60% of all deforestation in Guatemala and that this is caused by people engaging in subsistence activities (maize and livestock).
The funds donated by the E.U. will be used for the implementation of the Forestry Sector Modernization Project of Honduras (MOSEF).
The country uses only between 2% and 4% of its land for conservation and forestry production.
From 28 to 30 January, national forest fund experts will meet in Costa Rica to present effective strategies for forestry funding.
The size of areas granted as forest concessions to communities, mainly in the northern Peten zone, rose from 510,000 hectares in 2007 to 680,000 in 2011.
