Sustainable forestry

SOCODEVI upholds an integrated approach for the sustainable and inclusive management of forest resources, by and for neighbouring communities. We help mobilize people in creating and consolidating cooperative and associative enterprises as a way to manage and share the wealth that comes from the forest.

Through their cooperative or associative forestry enterprise, communities are counting on the sustainable development of logging and processing operations for timber and other forest products. Our approach also provides leverage to professionalize the work undertaken in the forest, obtain certification for forest stewardship, and create sustainable jobs.


“We work together, within our cooperative, to better manage the resources in our forest, but also to protect the forest so that our youths can benefit from it as well.”
