Forest Stewardship Certification in Kyrgyzstan
KAFLU and partners have worked to improve forest management in Kyrgyzstan by designing and implementing a forest management certification programme - the Forest Stewardship Council's (FSC) Certification process for non-timber forest products (NTFP). The FSC Certification tool has been implemented by 75 tenants in 4 pilot areas, and has strengthened the livelihoods of forest dwelling communities who trade in NFTPs.
