CHAMPFNL - Development of non-timber forest product sectors with Gilé National Park
Nitidæ's consultancy during phase 1 had successfully enabled the identification of wild Miombo mushroom species, a market study, the installation of solar dryers and a first marketing test in Maputo which was very successful, as well as the start of honey production for the Park. This phase 2 aims to continue these efforts and help the Park to develop a commercial structure to make the link between the associations of producers and the market.
