NTFPs overseas

Particular interest in non-timber forest products has been shown in developing countries, where they can make a substantial contribution to local economies. The increasing number of NTFP-related research and development initiatives overseas, and corresponding efforts to ensure sustainability, can provide valuable lessons for development of this sector in Scotland.
