(QNO) - According to the Quang Nam provincial People’s Committee’s Decision No. 3059 on forestry development in the period of 2021-2025, a vision to 2030, Quang Nam will facilitate businesses’ or organisations’ participation in forestry development with the aim of local socio-economic development.
It is considered a solution to the problems of eco-environment, biodiversity preservation, and environmental services, contributing to improving living condition and standard in rural and mountainous areas, and to national security.
The targets of Quang Nam are to maintain the existing natural forest area of 466,207 hectares and improve the quality of natural forests through forest conservation and restoration.
The forest coverage is expected to reach 61%, equivalent to nearly 480,000 hectares by 2025. Besides, there will be 3000 hectares of new large timber plantations and 2500 hectares of protection forests.
It is expected by 2025 that there will be at least 15% of planted forests with an FSC certificate, an increase of forestry production values by at least 5% a year, and the value of forest production accounting for 15.21% of the gross value of agricultural production.
To reach the targets, Quang Nam has different solutions to different problems, including forest management, biodiversity conservation, forest protection, forest development, forest use, processing and trade of forest products.
At the same time, it is necessary to improve the capacity of forest management agencies, strengthen forest governance, forest protection and development associated with bettering the locals’ livelihood.
