National Forest Programme (2010-2029)

legislation type Executive
Programme
Passed in 2010
The first version of the National Forest Programme aims at achieving a balance between economic development and broader community benefits from forests and environmental protection, in a country where forests represent a key factor of rural subsistence. The Programme focuses over the period 2010-2029.

The document lists the challenges faced by the country's forests, establishes a Community Forestry Programme to implement in communities, details capacity and research development goals, and discusses sustainable forest financing.

The document explicitly addresses tackling climate change (second strategic direction).
