The objective of this consultancy is to design and implement a capacity building programport_barton_palawan2 for community forestry that will benefit the implementation of the ASL projects in Brazil, Peru and Colombia. The process should involve a comprehensive study tour that will provide an opportunity for the participants to learn from successful cases and receive technical knowledge.
