The Objective of this project is to encourage the establishment of resilient institutional arrangements, supported by relevant policy frameworks, that foster landscape-scale forest management for the benefit of smallholders.
To achieve that the project sets out to:
1. Identify gaps in the current management options, institutional arrangements and policy framework at district and provincial levels; based on findings design and develop resilient management approaches for the landscape level
2. Facilitate synergies between government programs in forest and non-forest areas and stakeholders' priorities and interests at the landscape level (i.e. government agencies, local communities, private sector actors)
3. Design and implement capacity building strategies and activities to enhance the adoption of the sustainable integrated landscape approach that account for multiple management objectives at the landscape level
4. Support internalisation of the agreed arrangement and strategy of a sustainable integrated landscape-based management of timber and NTFPs, and the associated supported policies and/or regulations instruments at various levels (national, provincial, district and village) and monitor the impact of these changes.
