Abstract: The purpose of this investigation is to develop a better understanding of the Reventazón Model Forest's (RMF) system, a subsystem of the International Model Forest Network (IMFN), and its potential interaction with other model forests of the IMFN. In this context, the system approach is used to examine the RMF subsystem, within which a variety of components are organized and interconnected. This study first carries out the analysis of one of the RMF components: the agroforestry practices with annual crops in the northern part of the Reventazón watershed. A qualitative methodology is then developed and applied to facilitate the priority ranking of elements potentially transferrable or exchangeable between at least two model forests through the comparison of the RMF (Costa Rica) and the Bas-Saint-Laurent Model Forest (Canada). This study demonstrates the prospect that exists for these sites to establish a closer relationship by engaging in horizontal collaboration and knowledge sharing opportunities.
