Annex 1: Forest Certification in Brazil

The Parallel Evolution of Community Forest Management in the Brazilian Amazon and FSC Certification


Tasso Rezende de Azevedo and André Giacini de Freitas - IMAFLORA, Forest Trends






This article focuses on community forest management of natural forests in the Brazilian Amazon. The nature of community management that encompasses small-scale production, organized in some collective fashion, could be explored further in the future to also cover the experiences of small-scale forest management development linked to forest companies in southern Brazil, as well as the experiences with forest restoration associations. These groups account for more than fifty thousand producers in Brazil.
