Education and Training in Natural Forest Management. Training Discussion Paper No. 88.
Longo, Alceu Natal
A program for natural forest management in developing countries consists of several integrated projects. Although aimed at establishing norms and criteria for natural forest management in Mata Atlantica (Atlantic Forest) in southern Brazil, the norms also apply to other types of tropical vegetation in order to ensure continuous economic exploitation of forest resources, maintain their genetic patrimony, and respect the delicate ecological balance. Emphasis is put on education and training programs for workers and technicians involved in forestry work. Both university programs and formal training projects are advocated. Training is essential in order to ensure maximum safety in forest management. This requires great changes in human behavior toward the forest. (Author/KC)
