Developing Forestry and Land Use Policy

Developing Forestry and Land Use Policy in Context of Climate Change

04 January 2016

Reform of forestry and land use policy offers the opportunity to build resilience against climate change and associated environmental shocks, support climate change mitigation, and improve local level forest and land management.

To formulate policy that can be successfully implemented in meeting the needs of multiple stakeholders, governments must adopt procedures that facilitate awareness raising and consultation based on sound analysis of relevant information. Through this process, realistic and appropriate policies can be crafted with inputs and buy-in from the diverse stakeholders whose interests are to be served and whose support is essential in moving forward.

This policy brief describes a process aimed at formulating and implementing effective policy in four steps: Agenda Setting; Developing Policy; Implementing Policy; and Reviewing Policy.
