Smallholder Update for Q2
The Smallholder Update for the second quarter of 2013 is now published and you can download it here.
This quarter’s Smallholder Update presents articles that focus on some of the achievements of the FSC Smallholder Support Programme, including information on FSC’s Modular Approach Program (MAP), which is aimed at providing a structured path to achieve FSC certification stepwise. The newly launched Smallholder Fund, where smallholders can apply for grants, is also presented, and you will get a status update on the Small and Community Label Option. Furthermore, the newsletter brings the story of the FSC group certificate holder, Wild Living Resource Conservancy, made up of members that are small farmers in Kenya.
Please don't forget that the deadline for applying for the Smallholder Fund has been extended to 19th July 2013. For more information on the fund, please click here.
