A CONSULTANCY TO REVISE THE COLLABORATIVE FOREST MANAGEMENT GUIDELINES

The Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE) and the National Forestry Authority (NFA) have been implementing Collaborative Forest Management (CFM) program in Central Forest Reserves for the past two decades. The CFM approach enables communities to participate in meaningful negotiations and decision-making regarding the routine management of forest resources, and to benefit from the sustainable co-management of forests. The government recognizes the role of community involvement in forest resource management and has put in place an enabling policy environment through the Forestry Policy of 2001 and the National Forestry and Tree Planting Act of 2003 which provide for CFM. Further, the National Forestry and Tree Planting Regulations (2016) in Part IV (Regulations 17-30) strengthen the provisions of CFM.

In line with the recommendations of the National Review of CFM (2020), MWE is seeking the services of a consultant to review the Guidelines for CFM through a consultative multi-stakeholder process.
