The Forestry Research Institute of Malawi Forestry
Plan of Action for 1997-2000 lists the Forestry Policy
objectives, strategies, activities, evaluation criteria and time span.
This page lists the policy objectives only that apply to FRIM as specified
in the forestry plan of action. For strategies and activities refer to
the Action Plan. These objectives are as follows:
Enable and promote the participation of local communities and the private
sector in forest conservation and management, eliminating restrictions
on sustainable harvesting of essential forest products by local communities
and promoting planned harvesting and regeneration of forest resources by
Village Natural Resources Management Committees (VNRMCs).
Accelerate and intensify efforts to manage forest plantations for the production
of timber and industrial wood products and to provide the correct incentives
for the development of primary and secondary forest industries with a view
to achieving self-sufficiency and to generate revenue through the export
of wood products.
