Within the scope of the master thesis “The application of a forest Suitability map for sustainable forest management in Suriname and Western French Guiana”, the focus shall be on how the Rabia, Storie, and Square Root method of land evaluation using an optimized Digital Elevation Model as primary input dataset reflect current forest management practices in Suriname and Western French Guiana. Within this context, a brief history of forest management in Suriname shall be explored, how various technological and social transformations were implemented to increase sustainable forest management, what the current state of forestry is and how the proposed suitability analysis fits within the current narrative and future prospects of sustainable forest management.
