The Process of Forest Certification in the Mayan Biosphere Reserve in Petan, Guatemala


Carlos Soza - Forest Trends






This case study is based on all the community forest concessions of the Mayan Biosphere Reserve, with special emphasis on these two concessions: Carmelita and Asociación Forestal Integral San Andrés, Petén. The objective of this paper is to analyze the effects generated as a result of forest certification, and to verify if the certification has achieved its objectives, like helping the communities to access better market prices in return for a good forest management.
