Status PENDING FINANCE
Executing agency

Summary In its mission to implement the reforestation and sustainable management of state plantations, ONAB is increasingly challenged by the adverse effects of wild land fires. Each year ONAB invests significant resources in fire control efforts, however the results of its fire management actions fall short of expectation. This project was developed to strengthen the current fire prevention and control system in order to contribute to sustainable plantation management. The three outputs expected at the end of this project are as follows: (i) Municipal authorities and local communities are involved in fire management (ii) An integrated forest management plan is identified, (iii) The technical and organizational capacities of grassroots stakeholders are increased. By project completion date, it is expected that all seven municipalities and the target groups of the local population will be adequately outreached and aware to engage in the wild land fire control effort. A fire warning and monitoring system will be established and operational. It will secure plantation forests against fires and reduce the damage caused by wildfires on these plantations, while improving the incomes of local communities.
