From 8 to 18 March, the Sustainable Forest Livelihoods for Communities (SFL) team went to the Boven-Suriname region to have krutus (meetings) with Saamaka communities and learn about their needs to achieve further development. The SFL team informed the community members about the EU funded project and listened to their concerns about development constraints within the community.

The recurring elements from the discussions were then shared with District Commissioner Frits Dinge and with the experts preparing the more detailed work plan for the SFL project. The final activities of the project and the need from the communities in Boven-Suriname should be seamlessly aligned for a sustainable difference.
