Forestry Act 1991
The National Forest Policy provides the basis for forest resource management in the country. Forests play an indispensa-ble role in the preservation of ecological balance and maintenance of bio-diversity. Forest also constitutes one of the most effective carbon-sink. The Forest sector is critical to addressing the issues of climate change through supporting initiatives in climate impact and mitigation, particularly through carbon stock inventory and reducing emission from de-forestation and forest degradation.
