Training and capacity buidingWe are committed to sharing our knowledge by delivering a wide range of effective and highly regarded training courses and capacity building.
Training and knowledge sharing provide the fundamental building blocks for sustainable natural resource management, and are an essential prerequisite for scaling up the operations of sustainability initiatives.
Proforest is at the forefront of training on sustainability standards in forestry and agricultural commodities, including voluntary certification schemes and supply chain controls, best practice in standard setting and effective stakeholder engagement. Using training courses, workshops, handbooks and technical guides, we prepare people to implement standards, push forward sustainability initiatives, and develop new policy instruments.
Awareness of sustainability issues is growing worldwide. People working in all forms of natural resource management need to understand what these mean and how to implement them. To meet this need, Proforest is working with partners around the world to develop a network of training organisations and support centres providing locally adapted, high quality training.
In addition to public training courses, Proforest Consultancy Services provides capacity building within companies and organisations, tailored to their specific needs.
