Photo of the Week: Envisioning the Nicaraguan Forestry Research Center

Staff from PROLEÑA, our partner organization in Nicaragua, walk the site of the future National Forestry Biomass Research Center in La Paz Centro.

The National Forestry Biomass Research Center will focus on implementing general procedures and practices for integral forest management. In particular, we will develop techniques that increase productivity in forest and agricultural plantations to permanently guarantee quality of local plant production. Technology and skills transfer will be utilized in the development of modern tubette nurseries, as well as for biomass fuel related topics, such as charcoal briquette manufacture and gasification of agricultural residues as fuel for local industries such as bakeries, lime producers, and ceramicists.
