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

ZIFLP HFO brief Sep23

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). With consent of their Chief, these are then recognised by the Director of Forestry to be responsible for protection and management including controlling access and use of their forest.
