Welcome to FORVAC
Forest-Based Value Chains
Forestry and Value Chains Development programme (FORVAC) increases economic, social and environmental benefits from forests and woodlands whilst tackling deforestation. By working closely with local enterprises and communities, FORVAC will develop forest-based value chains thereby inducing growth in local economies, while at the same time fostering local ownership of the forests. It also supports government institutions in developing their legal and policy framework to improve forest governance and promote sustainable forest resources management. The 330,000 beneficiaries range from individuals, communities, and traders to private companies in the vast regions Tanga, Lindi and Ruvuma and beyond.
