Forestry Strategy to the Year 2020

This strategy was approved by Decree no 229/PM of August 9th, 2005. It sets the government’s forestry policy to 2020. Deforestation and forest degradation are identified as key issues to tackle. The document recognises the role of forests in protecting the climate. The strategy further aims at fostering reforestation by allocating small farmers with a fee corresponding to the amount of trees they plant.
