As forest resources become increasingly scarce from the competing demands of agricultural production, conservation, development and climate change, managing them to promote forest health, productivity and economic growth becomes ever more challenging.
Our core strategies to overcome these challenges include:
Collecting and managing comprehensive forest inventory data.
Managing for species diversity.
Engaging stakeholders and populations in forest management;
Attracting the private sector.
Diversifying income streams
Creating access to markets.
Integrating forestry with other sectoral programs.
Facilitating national and sub-regional consultation on forest development and management strategies.
