|The term “national forest programme” (nfp*) is a generic expression for a wide range of approaches towards forest policy formulation, planning and implementation at the subnational and national levels. As one of the most important outcomes of international forest policy dialogue, the nfp is the first commonly agreed framework for sustainable forest management which is applicable to all countries and to all types of forests. Hence, an nfp serves as a framework to put international agreements on sustainable forest management into practice. The NFP Facility web site offers information services and exchange learning, experiences, evaluation and lessons learnt on the implementation of nfp processes. The Facility supports the nfps as a natural platform for implementing sustainable forest management and therefore forest-related climate change issues.
These materials are a useful kit for teachers in rural areas but also for planners, educators on rural development and managers of agricultural education.
In particular, the NFP Facility provides a solid local level input for policy decision makers at national level.
