Conflict-sensitive business practice: Guidance for commercial reforestation in Colombia

Summary:

In 2005, the environmental programme of GTZ in Colombia partnered with International Alert to initiate a validation process for the application of the toolbox Conflict-sensitive business practice (CSBP) to the reforestation sector in Colombia. Stemming from the meetings that took place with the participation of some of the most important reforestation companies of the country and Fundación Ideas para la Paz and the above mentioned validation process, it was decided to adapt CSBP to the specific characteristics of commercial reforestation activities, with the understanding that this type of toolbox could be of great benefit in the planning and implementation of forestry plantation projects that are or will be developed in the country.
