Date: Tuesday, 9 November, 2021 to Wednesday, 10 November, 2021
Organized by: SustForest Plus Project

The final conference of the SustForest Plus project is a unique opportunity for actors in forestry and natural resin value chain to get an overview of all the work carried out by the project. During this conference, translated into French, Portuguese and Spanish, you will learn about new tapping techniques, profitability and international markets for this renewable product. You will discover the marketing and traceability tools and the evaluation of the quality of the resins implemented by the project, as well as the proposals to improve the working conditions of the tapping workers. As this is a long-term project, you will be able to join the various networks created to preserve tapping activity.

The conference is organized by the Institut Européen De La Forêt Cultivée , the Centre National de la Propriété Forestière and the Cesefor Foundation.
