The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) recognises that its certification process is foreboding and off-putting for the small guys.  Ahika is part of the team who are working towards changing the certification process by developing user-friendly guidelines and standards, as well as an online spatially based land management planning system.  This online system will allow small forest owners to input data and management decisions about their farms, forests and conservation areas.  It guides users through the needs of FSC certification, delivering a certifiable management plan out the back end.
