1.0 Introduction

The objective of this study was to collect, review and interpret existing information on status of the forestry sector and to present a possible path of development for the sector through to the year 2000. The study therefore endeavoured to:

appreciate both internal and external factors affecting the forestry sector

understand the role of forests and trees in people’s livelihoods through forest industry, small scale forest industry and subsistence level activities.

consider productive, protective and social functions of forests in the context of sustainable forest management

address policy implications and institutional development requirements for sustainable forest management

The approach adopted aims at providing insight into likely implications of developments within and outside the sector in order to facilitate decision-making processes in the sector.
