Support to Forest Sector Reform - Miti Mingi Maisha Bora



Kenya's forest sector is on the cusp of massive institutional reform. A new forest policy and legislation has paved the way for doing forestry more responsibly through restructuring government and encouraging meaningful engagement with the private sector and community forestry associations. LTS assisted with the design of a 5-year "Miti Mingi Maisha Bora - Support to Forest Sector Reform" implementation phase (2009-2014) valued at 22 million. The 5-year programme will: (i) establish capacity within the Ministry of Forestry and Wildlife for coordination and regulation of forestry issues including the establishment of a National Forestry Advisory Council, (ii) build capacity within the Kenya Forest Service to deliver a range of quality forestry products and services, (iii) improve the management of gazetted forest reserves in selected pilot areas through improved management practices and partnerships and (iv) increase the income of farmers and communities in selected pilot areas through improved production, processing and marketing of forestry products.
