Council Forests

Council Forests

With the support of the program the Nguti Council Forest (11,919 ha) is in the process of being classified (the classification file was forwarded to the PM’s office in April 2009 and its draft management plan had been prepared in December 2008). A second council forest, Mundemba Council Forest (36,210 ha) is in the process of being classified having received support from GIZ ProPSFE and PSMNR-SWR. The classification file was forwarded in February 2011 to the Prime Minister’s office. Although the delay in obtaining the classification decrees of these council forests is making it impossible to carry out any planned activities, meetings are being organised with Mayors, Members of Parliament and Elites of the councils concerned to follow-up classification files at the level of Prime Minister’s Office and Presidency.
