DescriptionThe programme 'Promotion and Development of Non-wood Forest Products (NWFP)' is one of the priority areas of FAO's Forestry Department. Its mission is to improve the sustainable utilization of NWFP in order to contribute to the wise management of the world's forests, to conserve their biodiversity, and to improve income-generation and food security. The programme accomplishes this mission through four main areas of intervention: gathering, analysis and dissemination of information; appraisal of NWFP socio-economic contribution to rural development; networking; technical assistance. The biannual newsletter 'Non-Wood News', the journal 'NWFP digest', and other FAO publications related to NWFPs are available from the website.
