Community Forest Development
Lindon Corporation currently provides transaction advisory services to the Industrial Development Corporation’s (IDC) “Forestry Project Development Fund”. Our mandate includes the identification of potentially viable community afforestation and re-forestation opportunities for the IDC’s consideration.
The methodology adopted includes a scan of all potential project identification channels, conduct of site visits and preparation of investment scoping reports of qualifying projects. Once approved, a detailed business plan is developed and funding approved for the project.
The potential outcomes of this project are that more communal forestry projects are being considered for funding and rural employment is promoted as each communal forest employs between 15 and 20 people.
