Forestry policies, institutions and programmes
Forestry issues are currently being dealt with by the Secretary for Foreign Liaison and International Cooperation.
Implementation of criteria and indicators for sustainable forest management falls under the Near East Process as set out at the FAO/UNEP Expert Meeting on Criteria and Indicators for Sustainable Forest Management in Cairo, Egypt in October 1996. In this meeting, participating countries identified for further consideration seven national level criteria and 65 indicators, mainly focused on the management of dry-zone forests and woodlands in the region.
