The project GLRF (Gestion Locale des Ressources Forestières/Local forest management) in Burkina Faso aims at implementing at a large scale (25 rural communes) the local forest management model that the non-governmental organization Tree Aid has developed and tested in 8 rual communes in Burkina Faso.

The model contains the follwing main steps :- Mapping of resources through forest inventories and land maps - Socio-economic surveys - Preparation of forest management plans together with local stakeholders (NGO, community organizations, local small enterprises, commune representatives etc) - Forest regeneration and improved forest production together with village organisations, forest extension services and forest researchers- Establishment of micro water dams in the forests in order to increase CO2 sequestration, increase biological diversity and increase forest production- Market studies to identify value chains with economic potential and relevance for vulnerable households- Strengthening of value chains (production - processing - marketing)- Support to local small enterprises och promotion of sustainable micro finance solutions

The Project particularly focuses on women and youth. Capacity building of local groups, small businesses and representatives of communes and government services is an important part of the Project.
