Forest law enforcement
Assistance to make operational the legal forestry framework and the national forest programme
Under the FAO-Netherlands Partnership Programme, FAO is supporting the implementation of a project in Honduras titled ¿Assistance to make operational the legal forestry framework and the national forest programme¿. The project was initiated in early 2005 and has a duration of three years. One of its objectives is to develop the basic elements for the formulation and implementation of strategies to combat illegal logging and marketing and trade of illegally sourced timber in pilot areas as an input to the national strategy. The project will also propose modifications to the current forestry regulations, which will constitute an indirect contribution to law enforcement in the forest sector.
