NONGOVERNMENT REFORESTATION IN THE PHILIPPINES: WAYS FORWARD

image

This study reviews and assesses nongovernment reforestation in the Philippines vis--vis government and total reforestation using primary and secondary data. The objective is to identify issues and problems related to nongovernment reforestation and recommend actions that can be undertaken to address them. This study finds that government reforestation dominates total reforestation, while nongovernment reforestation only has a relatively small contribution in recent years. It asserts that private reforestation has been the main driver of nongovernment reforestation at present. However, its full development as an industry has been hindered by various institutional, production, and marketing issues and problems. This study recommends ways to address these problems and issues to move nongovernment reforestation forward.
