Deramakot Forest Reserve is the first natural tropical rainforest in the world to be certified as “well-managed” by the Forest Stewardship Council. This 55,507 hectare forest has also earned the rare distinction for being the longest certified rainforest in the world by the Forest Stewardship Council since 1997.
