Cooperation in small forest producers in Bolivia
in Knowledge, democracy and action

In the Chiquitania region of Bolivia, precious woods are products of high value that can be acquired from communities through local intermediaries at very low prices. Timber buyers acquire timber from people and communities through a system of loans and exchanges that often disadvantage small producers In 2003, the governments of Bolivia and Spain agreed to undertake a forestry development project in the Chiquitania region. The Chiquitania Forestry development project was undertaken within the VII Joint Hispano-Bolivian Cooperation Commission. In Bolivia, the Forestry Law gives municipalities responsibility for promoting local forestry development activities. The project involved a wide range of participants. To facilitate the adoption of a research-action approach, project coordination was undertaken by a Centro Boliviano de Estudios Multidisciplinarios (CEBEM) researcher. This facilitated the establishment of strategies for monitoring social interaction, support and methodological design.
