FROM THE BEGINNING
REDD+ Manoa is one of the last forest areas remaining in the region, constantly threatened by invasions and timber theft. Manoa is of paramount importance in the landscape connectivity, as it is close to conservation units and provides shelter for several endangered species.
Through its own training center, CEFLOM, the project provides training in techniques aimed at teaching sustainable development practices such as responsible forest management, agroforestry systems, low carbon agriculture, and environmental education.
Throughout its 30-year history, Manoa has improved its management techniques, becoming a world reference model of forest exploration coupled with nature conservation by adopting reduced impact harvesting techniques and complying with the principles of FSC forest certification.
