Regional Study on Forestry Policy and Institutional Reforms, Formulation of the Bank's Policy for Forestry



The study revised the ADB forest policy and sector strategy to make it consistent with and reflective of the needs of the Developing Member Countries, recent thinking and developments in the sector and to align the policy within ADB's overarching objective of poverty reduction. LTS provided the Forest Policy and Economics Specialist to the Bank's study team, which reviewed the performance of the ADB's current (1995) Policy for Forestry, and the performance of the investment portfolio in the forestry sector; considered how macro-economic factors such as taxes, subsidies and general market failures contribute to poor performance. Based on these findings, the LTS consultant supported the ADB in formulating its Policy for Forestry, which will guide investment decisions and project design in the medium term.
