Forest governance mapping report

 

A combination of desk study review and focused group survey & interviews revealed a myriad of governance gaps and challenges in the forestry sector. Many  opportunities though exist for using the Growing Forest Partnership (GFP) initiative as a governance tool to fill these gaps. However, this would require better understanding of forestry reform programs of the past and those on-going in order to design appropriate GFP intervention strategies to achieve agreed governance goals. Central to GFP initiative is the need to create and strengthen ways of various actors working together for the benefit of forests and the people that depend on them.
