National Forest Programme Facility (Facility)
Mandateimprove the ways in which government and civil society actors are able to cooperate in planning and enacting policy
stimulate the formation of national forest programmes in countries without a process and strengthen or revive stalled processes
ensure that national planning processes meet globally accepted levels of inclusiveness, coherence and sustainability
strengthen and streamline knowledge and information relevant to national forest programme implementation and make this knowledge available where and when it is needed.
The ultimate goal of the Facility is to assist countries to put into place forest policy planning and implementation processes that effectively address local needs and national priorities, and reflect internationally agreed principles for national forest programmes.
