Finnfor II Project consolidated and generated some successful experiences with value chains for forest products in the intervened countries. Currently, this approach constitutes an innovative model beginning with forest management all through logging, transformation and commercialization. During this year, the Finnfor II team systematized the experiences in each country and analyzed the crosscutting points that characterize the value chains sponsored. This points are the ecologic integrity of ecosystems, organization and equity, access to finance and incentives, governance and legality, improvement of technological packages, competitiveness, strategic partnerships, and market access for commercialization.
