Concession and Forest Lot Data for VenezuelaEntry ID: Con_Ven_GFW
Abstract: This dataset consists of concession and forest lots data for Venezuela. This
shapefile contains information on concession status, percent logged, and
presence of irregular activity. To date, concessions have only been allocated
in Bolívar State. Active" = concessions currently being logged; "Inactive" =
concessionaires have stopped logging; "Suspended" = logging has stopped pending
government investigation of infractions; "In review" = inactive pending
government review of the management plan.
In keeping with Venezuelan forest policy, all concessionaires must operate a
sawmill. "Irregular" concession holders are defined as those who are currently
under investigation for forestry infractions or do not operate a sawmill.
