About us

The MASBOSQUES Corporation is a private, non-profit public association that works to build a strategic vision of sustainable forest management. It was created on September 30, 2003 as a result of the Alternative Financing Model for the Sustainable Management of Forests of San Nicolás, Colombia, funded by the Autonomous Regional Corporation of the Rio Negro and Nare -CORNARE-, the Swiss Federal Institute Research and Testing of Materials and Technologies-EMPA- and the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO).

MASBOSQUES aims to combine the skills, experience and creativity of its partners to enable communities to participate in different markets for environmental services by making appropriate use of natural resources and taking into account the criteria of the Clean Development Mechanism CDM of the Kyoto Protocol.
