FORVAC INTERNAL GUIDELINES – COVID-19April 23, 2020
The Forestry and Value Chains Development Programme (FORVAC) is a 4-year (7/2018-6/2022) Programme funded by the Governments of Tanzania and Finland. The implementing agency of the programme is the Forest and Beekeeping Division (FBD) of the Ministry for Natural Resources and Tourism (MNRT), in close cooperation with Tanzania Forest Service (TFS) and the President's Office Regional Administration and Local Government (PO-RALG). FORVAC is working in three
different cluster areas; Tanga, Ruvuma and Lindi.
Forestry and Value Chains Development (FORVAC) aims to contribute in increasing economic, social and environmental benefits from forests and woodlands while reducing deforestation. The expected outcome of FORVAC is “Improved forest-based income, livelihoods and environmental benefits”.
FMP is an important step to legalize the ownership of the forest resource within the community and to ensure sustainable use of forest products, as stipulated in Community Based Forest Management Guidelines, 2007. In the case the forest has potential for timber harvesting, an inventory must be carried out and annual allowable cut calculated by species. Planning of other income generation models (planting trees, NWFPs, sustainable charcoal production) should also
be included in the forest management planning process. Involving District Forest Office in FMP is a prerequisite for sustainability and further support and
monitoring of community forestry.
