Decentralized Forest and Other Natural Resources Programme (DFNRMP) in Zambia

Countries of implementation

The Decentralised Forest and Other Natural Resources Programme is designed for a 12-year period to support the government and communities in implementing the Forest Act 2015

The introduction phase (2015-2017), as a first phase of a programme, works on 3 main components: (i) Institutional Development for Natural Resource Sector Devolution; (ii) Sustainable Forest and other Natural Resources Management; and (iii) Rural Entrepreneurship and Alternative Livelihoods. The project is implemented in 3 districts in Muchinga province and 3 districts in NW province. The project is linked to Zambia’s ongoing decentralisation process and uses a multi-sector integrated approach for planning and implementation of activities.
