Privatisation of Commercial Forest Plantations



The privatisation of Malawi's commercial forest plantations was a hot topic in the National Forest Programme (NFP) process. DFID has supported privatisation since the late nineties. The Malawi Forestry Department had prepared an outline of a project to privatise its commercial forestry plantations, to augment resources committed and to integrate Finnish assistance. LTS was crucial in the detailed preparation of DFID support, including aspects of feasibility and financing in order to transfer the management of commercial forest plantations from the public to private sector in a transparent, accountable and effective process addressing poverty, sustainability and equity issues.
