  1. The general announcement and the attachment have 2 different personnel requirements. Could you please clarify which one to focus on. Or Both? Our company has all of these but in order to respond to the opportunity it will be helpful to understand the personnel needs.
    Thanks

    *The team must possess expertise of a Lawyer, a Wildlife Management Specialist and a Anthropologist/Sociologist
    *The team must possess expertise of a Forestry Expert, a Forest Ecologist and a Socio-Economist

  2. While preparing information to submit to PACT regarding the Freshwater Forest Management Plan, the team came upon this on World Bank website for projects in Belize.
    Not only does it note that work in on going at multiple areas, including Freshwater, it also indicates that whomever the contractor is seems to be performing less than satisfactory.
    Can you, or if you can, please explain what is going on?

  3. It helped when you mentioned that it is important that firms are helping the forest. My uncle mentioned to me last night that he is hoping to find a forestry consultant that can help him with site preparation for his farm and asked if I have any idea what is the best option to do. Thanks to this informative article and I’ll be sure to tell her that she should consult a trusted forestry consultant as they can answer all his inquiries.
