East African Community Forestry Policy and Strategy Development begins in Tanzania
Kenya Forest Service is taking part in the East African Community (EAC) Forestry Policy and Strategy development in Moshi, Tanzania.
The EAC Forestry Policy and Strategy has been developed through a participatory and consultative approach involving state and non-state actors from Partner States (Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, South Sudan and Burundi) representing a regional perspective on the operationalization of the policy’s objectives.
The Forestry Strategy lays the groundwork for a coordinated response for collective actions to maximize the contribution of the forest sector to peoples’ livelihoods improvement, socio-economic development and transformation in the East African region.
The ten-year framework is designed to facilitate the implementation of the EAC Forestry Policy to ensure that its objectives including strengthening forestry governance and management are fulfilled through a harmonized implementation programme of the agreed strategic actions.
The Service is represented at the function by Regional Forest Conservation Area Office Coordinator Dr Benjamin Kinyili.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
