About

The Knowledge Repository for Non-Wood Forest Products is a collection of information on innovation about non-wood forest products (NWFP) gathered from experts and practitioners during the INCREDIBLE project. It brings together, in a single platform, knowledge about NWFP around various themes.

For each theme, knowledge is assembled via a series of questions to which the collated information provides one or more answers.

What you can find

The Knowledge repository for Non-Wood Forest Products concerns the following NWFP in the Mediterranean basin:

Cork | Resin | Wild mushrooms & truffles | Aromatic & medicinal plants | Wild nuts & berries.

Each piece of knowledge is summarised in a factsheet, that can concern one or several NWFP, as some issues or solutions are transversal. The factsheets can either contain practical knowledge (success stories, good practices, technical reports) or more theoretical or academic results (research results, databases, policies). The factsheets can also be identified by the position in the value chain to which the knowledge applies, from forestry to end-consumers.

Where you can find it

Navigate the repository in three different ways:

  • Use the search engine to find specific text or keywords or use filters for a range of search options
  • Read the factsheets as a handbook by browsing the table of contents
  • Browse the map to find knowledge coming from a specific region.

Want to know more?

The factsheets summarise knowledge from several sources. If you are interested, more detailed information is available by:

  • accessing recommended readings in the Further information section
  • contacting the author(s) who provided the information for the fact sheet and get the information first-hand
  • contacting the rapporteur of the fact sheet, who uploaded it into the repository.

About the rapporteurs and the authors

Consortium members of the INCREDIBLE project are the rapporteurs of fact sheets published until October 2020. Some fact sheets stem from the collective knowledge of the consortium, including information exchanges taken place during project events, while other data comes from available and relevant scientific and grey literature, as well as existing repositories or simply success stories of innovation or good practices that deserve broader dissemination.
