|STUDY FOR CAPACITY BUILDING OF PRIVATE AND COMMUNITY TREE FARMERS IN BENIN
|Adjustment_Allocate from PS/C57
|Project total budget:
Over the last three decades, Benin has lost nearly 85 per cent of its dense forests and more than 30 per cent of its total forest cover. Reforestation is an alternative to reverse the trend for deforestation in Benin and ensure sustainable production of timber forest products. Thus, through the forestry policy developed and adopted in 1994, the Government of Benin has initiated the development of private forestry, with the aim of ensuring participation of the private sector in the progressive restoration of forest cover. The strategy also aims to increase the production of timber forest products while improving their quality.

However, owners of private forests are often left to their own devices, and their forests are not managed sustainably. This pre-project will identify the capacity-building needs of private (individual and community) tree farmers, with a view to preparing a capacity-building project for these growers and ensure the sustainable management of their forest plantations. The main expected outcomes of this pre-project are: (i) baseline information on private and community plantations is available; (ii) a capacity-building project for private and community tree farmers in southern Benin is developed and submitted to the ITTO.
