Forestry Act 2010 and Forestry Regulations 2014
In 2014, Forestry Regulations updated and precise the applicability of the original Act, notably in order to include carbon sequestration and reforestation within the possible objectives of Forest Management Plans. Private land-owners are equally encouraged to prepare such plans. Forest roads cannot be used as public highways unless a special governmental authorisation is priorly issued. The Regulations require that 20% of the land cover shall be designated into either a forest reserve, a protected forest or a conservation forest.
