Cooperative Republic of Guyana National Forest Plan 2018


The National Forest Plan 2018 was developed in conjunction with the Guyana National Forest Policy Statement with technical and stakeholder input. The Forest Plan describes the implementation steps for the Forest Policy, which will be carried out by the Guyana Forest Committee. 

Goals & Approach

The four main objectives of the Forest Plan are: derive development benefits from the forest; conserve, protect, and sustain the forest; govern the forest to ensure current and future benefits, build human and institutional capacity for management of activities in the forest. These objectives will be achieved primarily through policies and strategies that promote predictable, efficient, and timely outcomes. The implementation process will identify and collaborate with indigenous and local communities.
