Planned Nature-based Action in Adaptation Plan

Strengthen the implementation of the national Community-Based Forest Resources Management Program.
Support review and implementation of the National Forest Policy.

Develop and maintain a frequent forest inventory system to facilitate monitoring of forest status; and initiate a research programme on a range of climate change-related topics, including long term impacts of climatic shifts on closed forests.

Provide extension services to CSOs, communities and the private sector to help establish and restore community and private natural forests, plantations and nurseries.

Improve management of forest reserves and enforce low impact logging practice.

Initiate a national programme for integrated water resource management at the watershed level.
