  10. 10. Forest Governance Assessment – Zambezia and Cabo Delgado Low score areas: • Forest sector policies contradict those in other sectors • Stakeholder participation in planning and decision-making in the sector is low, particularly the inclusion of women • Implementation of laws and regulations – forest law enforcement is absent and forest crimes often go unpunished • Measures to combat corruption do not exist Carried out in 2016 using the Framework for Assessing and Monitoring Forest Governance, (developed by FAO and the Program on Forests (PROFOR))
  11. 11. Integrated landscape management programs • Community land delimitation and issuance of DUATs • Multi-stakeholder landscape forums • Planted Forests Grant Scheme • Agroforestry systems • Sustainable charcoal production …. FCPF, MozBio, SUSTENTA
  12. 12. • Unless the enabling environment is created, the sector cannot realize its potential • Current low sustainability generates limited income locally and for the economy – adding value to the forest is essential • The Government and private sector have critical roles - much more is needed • The Integrated Forests and Landscape Management portfolio aims to support a new vision in the sector Concluding Thoughts
