This toolkit is designed to demystify the concept of business incubation as something that is not only relevant for and applied in urban sectors, but also in rural contexts and with a focus on the forest sector. The toolkit offers a framework specific to the forest and farm landscape — in which there are peculiarities of context that require special treatment. It is intended to guide organisations who are already supporting Forest and Farm Producer Organisation (FFPO) businesses in some way but who want to increase, better structure, and target this support and improve the overall sustainability of the enterprises with which they work.
