Wi! Uma Fu Sranan (WUFS) is an organization that aims to improve the standard of living of female producers mainly in rural areas. This organization provided a training in Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) in Pikin Slee from 10 to 13 April 2019 in cooperation with Tropenbos Suriname (TBIS).
The project Sustainable Living in Pikin Slee in a changing climate (DLP) started in January 2019. This project is funded by the UNDP-GEF Small Grants Program (SGP) and runs until June 2020.
On Friday, March 22, 2019, Tropenbos Suriname launched its twinning project "Towards a Green and Livable Paramaribo" in the auditorium of the IGSR Staatsolie building. Trees and other urban green spaces can make an important contribution to a more liveable Paramaribo. Urban green spaces contribute, among other things, to a better microclimate, provision of fruits and herbs, recreation, a healthier environment, mitigation of flooding, and improving mental health. Nowadays there is insufficient appreciation for urban green spaces in our city. Concrete takes the upper hand and the environmental, social and economic benefits that urban green spaces can offer remain unused.
By enhancing sustainable use of tropical forests and trees, Tropenbos Suriname contributes to the improvement of livelihoods of people depending on forests and trees.
