National Forest Program 2015-2025
The Lebanese National Forest Plan (NFP) 2015-2025 constitutes the main forestry policy instrument that is being used by the ministry of Agriculture over the decade. The NFP details the government's interventions aimed at fostering sustainable management, coordination and cooperation mechanisms among both the public and private sectors.
The NFP's goals include 1) establishing restoration and rehabilitation plans in degraded lands to counteract soil erosion and desertification, 2) enhancing ecosystem resilience in forestland to mitigate the impact of climate change and other natural hazards, and 3) carbon sequestration. The document further discusses legal, operational and budgetary objectives.
