Non-timber forest products report
The United Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (WCMC) has released the report of a DFID sponsored project that has been looking at commercialization of non-timber forest products. The WCMC web site provides online access to both the report and background files, including the CEPFOR Decision Support Tool, a software tool designed to support the process of decision-making when selecting non-timber forest products for potential development. The tool is designed for use by anyone involved in commercialization of these resources, but is specifically aimed at supporting individuals or organisations working with communities and wanting to improve existing commercialization initiatives or establish new programmes of work. In HOORC’s Library you can find the IUCN supported report, NGO strategy on the environment 2002 - 2007 including strategic plans for forestry & veld products, Okavango Delta, urban environment and wildlife.
