This FOSA document has been prepared to determine the outlook of Forestry resources for the country in the year 2020. In Seychelles, the responsibility to prepare the report was given to the Forestry Section of the Ministry of Environment, being the sector with the portfolio for forestry issues.
The section under the guidance of the FOSA focal point carried out various interviews and held a national consultative workshop with the participation of key stakeholders to have their views on the outlook of forestry in Seychelles. To simplify the matter prior to the workshop, a questionnaire was sent to all stakeholders involved so that they can understand before hand the concept that was to be discussed and hence get them better prepared for the discussion. This proved very fruitful in the end.
The report is divided into two parts, a description of the actual state of forest resources and a forecast of the likely state of those same resources in the year 2020.
