Institutional framework as opportunity and challenge
The important function of tropical forests in carbon sequestration and the conservation of the enormous biodiversity is gradually becoming established in the public consciousness. The global community and tropical forestry are increasingly being viewed in the light of global resource depletion. When selecting suitable locations for its forestry operations, Precious Woods not only assesses availability, accessibility, and quality of the forest resources, but also places special emphasis on the framework conditions and reliability of the countries in question. Precious Woods respects the legal and institutional structures, local environmental and forestry policies, and relevant legislation, as well as their implementation in practice.
