Integrated Forest Management in the Solomon Islands

To support biodiversity conservation through expansion, enhanced management and financial sustainability of the country’s developing protected area network; sustainable and integrated landscape management targeting productive mixed-use corridor and buffer zone landscape; improved forest and natural resource management by local communities (e.g. including gender dimensions of non-timber forest product harvesting), and; the restoration and enhancement of carbon stocks in forest and non-forest lands. The project seeks to strengthen and complement efforts by the government of the Solomon Islands and its partners to promote new approaches to sustainable forest management that are socially viable, economically feasible, and environmentally sound.
