How do we work

In General:

Sicirec Bolivia ltda a social company is responsible for ArBolivia's management and implements all reforestation activities in joint-venture with interested rural smallholders. The responsibilities and tasks for both the smallholders and ArBolivia in order to execute reforestation activities, are arranged under a contractual agreement that confirms and transparents the business association.

The smallholders make an in-kind investment of land and labor required for site preparation, tree planting and plantation maintenance, while ArBolivia is responsible for the elaboration of land use plans, capacity building, site selection, production and transport of seedlings and technical support to the participating smallholders.

During the entire growth cycle the smallholders receive periodic payments for land preparation, tree planting and annual maintenance, after a technical verification and approval in order to assure their commitment and aleviate their labour investments.

Afterwards, Sicirec will handle the harvesting, prefabrication and commercialization of the produced timber, as well as its possible certification against international recognized standards, to enhance market prices. As estblished under the contractual agreements smallgolders will recieve 50% of the net revenues obtaines from the timber sale.

Field Implementation:

  • Obtaining constant, current, and verifiable information on the actual status of the plantations and plant production nurseries
  • Quality control and assurance of the results and activities reported from the field units
  • Dynamic intervention directed towards improving the quality and impact of the activities related to the plantations

 

Quality Control & Assurance:
