Community members support the Forestry Department with enforcement of forest laws as Honorary Forest Officers

ZIFLP HFO brief Sep23

Forest areas within Eastern Province are increasingly under threat of deforestation and forest degradation,
contributing to the increased emissions of greenhouse gases. This is affecting our climate, specifically the
rainfall patterns that we depend on as a country for our food security. The Forestry Department with technical and financial assistance from ZIFLP is supporting the implementation of Community Forestry across the Province. This is being accomplished by engaging communities and their Traditional Leaders, identifying areas of forest of importance to the community, developing participatory land and resource use plans, forming Community Forest Management Groups (CFMG).
