  • (Specific objective) To institutionalize the means to encourage the establishment of sustainable small-scale private forest plantations.

Expected Outputs

The project has three expected outputs:

  • Guidelines and incentives to encourage the establishment of small-scale private forest plantations are developed and endorsed; 
  • Comparative assessments of the patterns of growth and market demand to use in the selection of species to provide in the establishment of small-scale private forest plantations are prepared; and
  • Capacity building and outreach activities to initiate pilot plantations and prepare plans to support the continued establishment of small-scale private forest plantations are provided.
