Sustainable Management of Namibia’s Forested Lands (NAFOLA)


Titre : Sustainable Management of Namibia’s Forested Lands (NAFOLA)

Pays : Namibie

Durée : 2014 - 2019

Domaine d’intervention : Environment & Sustainable Development

Partenaires : National Planning Commission and Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry

Nafola aims to reduce pressure on forest resources by facilitating the gazettement of Community Forests, and increasing the capacity for the uptake of improved agriculture, livestock and forestry management practices in the community forest areas.
The project’s goal is to maintain current dry forests and the ecosystem goods and services they provide in 13 Community Forests covering over 500,000ha of forest lands, through wide scale adoption of SLM, SFM, and other improved technologies.
This will increase the productivity of drylands ecosystems while simultaneously reducing deforestation, securing the global environmental and national development benefits delivered by forest resources.
The project will support the generation and use of knowledge for integrated land use planning and policy reform through the implementation of forest valuations ; which will be used to inform local and national dialogue processes, aimed at influencing policy alignment in favour of forest resources. The outcome will ensure that knowledge based land use planning forms the basis for improving drylands sustainable economic development in eleven CFs to be gazetted.
