Institutional Support for the Development of Private Sector Forestry



The project assisted the Ministry of Agriculture/Department of Forestry by implementing a newly drafted forest policy in line with EU guidelines and ongoing European Forest Policy processes. Targeting the development of private forestry and promotion of the wood sector, LTS provided short-term inputs to establish the support and regulatory framework. This included harmonising regulations and standards for cultivation and marketing and drafting a national land-use strategy for rural and regional development. The project identified appropriate incentives to stimulate private afforestation and reforestation and propose an institutional system for certifying of forest propagation material.
