The wood industry is essential for the development of rural villages, as is the case in the Canton of Nandayure on the Nicoya Peninsula, which is embraced by hundreds of hectares of wood for consumption. About 11,000 people live here. To improve the quality of life of these people, new investments are indispensable, and for them better times are glimpsed.

We believe in lasting positive impacts for individuals and communities. We leverage powerful partnerships with relevant expertise to develop a framework for impact measurement. The impact is measured on multiple levels. We keep close ties with our partners to ensure that the anticipated impacts reach the target communities. At the core of the FCCF lie its lasting impacts. Some of our partners have shared their thoughts with us.
