The process of drafting and revising guidelines for NTFP certification

The process of drafting and revising guidelines for NTFP certification

The process of creating the NTFP guidelines involved numerous experts and collaborators across the globe, with a particular emphasis on Latin America. The guidelines were drafted between 1997 and 1998, with input from the NTFP certification advisory committee, certification experts and other forestry and NTFP specialists. Field-testing took place in three countries: Mexico (chicle), Bolivia (Brazil nut and palm heart), during the first half of 1998.
