The main objective of this cooperative network is the interchange of knowledge among scientist of 7 Latin-American countries (Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, España, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay) on the conservation and recovery of tropical humid- and dry-forests in the framework of the REDD+ program. 


This general aim will be accomplished through three main objectives:

ii) To improve the methods for calculating the content and emissions of carbon driven by deforestation and

iii)To analyze sustainable forest management strategies for humid- and dry-tropical forests in light of global change.
