Erik Schinkel – Operations Director Peru
“Like most people I adore forests and like most people I am aware that the world (we) needs forests. However, to preserve and restore forest landscapes this is not sufficient. The communities that live in and from these forests, as well as the local decisionmakers need to feel the benefits from the forests in their daily life. Here Form International makes an impact: making local communities participate in and benefit from sustainable forest landscape restoration projects financed by global capital.”
Erik has been working for 30 years in rural areas of Latin America and was involved in reforestation and agri & forestry business. He is a specialist in the development, implementation, and management of forestry projects in their rural and institutional settings. As such he is taking the lead in the forest landscape restoration in Peru.
