Forest Land Use Plan (FLUP)
One of the important aspects of the FLUP is the inclusion of the local community in the planning process as its ultimate goal is to make them stewards of the forests. When it comes to forest land use management, Participatory GIS is one of the approaches that we use to encourage information exchange with the locals. Such a process enriches the discussion, providing an interactive participation and effective communication. More so, it gives importance to the value of local knowledge during planning. This approach, together with the team’s robust experience in forestry and environmental planning, can give assurance to our clients that the process will be inclusive, participatory, and built on the principles of resource management.
