Cristhian finished a six-month fellowship in the fall of 2012. He studied marketing strategies of small forestry businesses and family forestland owners. From his research he developed a general marketing plan that can be implemented by small forestry companies and one that he hopes will help communites in Bolivia sell their wood products. Cristhain is a Project Officer for the Canadian-based company Co2Impact in LaPaz, Bolivia. His Fellowship was sponsored by the International Tropical Timber Organization.
