National Forest Programme
FAO support to NFPs
FAO Forestry supports the development and implementation of national forest programmes in countries in a number of ways.
FAO provides technical support to individual countries in their NFP processes. In most cases, the support is initiated through official requests made by the country, and can be provided to a range of activities. For example, FAO Forestry supports countries in the development, review, revision and implementation of:
- NFPs and overall governance frameworks;
- forest policies, strategies and/or actions plans;
- forest legislation;
- forestry institutions.
FAO also assist countries in their work with international themes and initiatives:
- FAO support related to the Forest Instrument (NLBI)
Support to the pilot implementation of the Forest Instrument (NLBI)
Support to reporting to the UNFF on the Forest Instrument (NLBI)
- Support related to integrating climate change, REDD+ and FLEGT into NFPs
Since 2002, the NFP Facility has provided targeted support to the stakeholder involvement in the forest policy process - NFP Facility.
FAO Forestry Department and the NFP Facility have produced training modules on different aspects of NFPs - Capacity Development.
