Marc PARREN | Honorary Treasurer

Marc Parren has more than 30 years of experience in tropical forestry mainly in West- and Central-Africa. He is well aware of the problems facing the tropical forests in these zones and the need to balance between the needs of the local human population and the pressure exerted by several parties on the natural resources. He has been engaged in finding sustainable solutions for managing these resources whether for timber production, pure conservation goals or for restoration after degradation. This also includes getting more trees in farms and at the larger landscape level, a topic he worked on before in several countries in Central Africa.
