FOREST MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR IMPLEMENTATION OF A PILOT REDD+ PROJECT FOR MASITO COMMUNITY FOREST RESERVE, KIGOMA, TANZANIA FOR 2012-2017: MANAGEMENT DIRECTIVES
Keywords:Sustainable Forest Management, Financial Incentive, Carbon Market, Biodiversity Conservation, Poverty Alleviation
Motivation/Background: Management directives form the basis on which management prescriptions are set. The directives range from the general ones at global level to the local site-specific level. The current paper presents management directives of a forest management plan for implementation of a pilot REDD+ project for Masito Community Forest Reserve, Kigoma, Tanzania for the period 2012-2017.
Method: The work mainly involved review of relevant documents enriched by discussions with project management. The directives were also discussed at a forest management planning workshop that involved members from the community-based organization that managed the target forest.
Results: The results are organized under sections for (1) global initiatives, policy statements and directives - focusing on the REDD+ strategy; (2) national initiatives, policy statements and directives. This focuses on national forest policy support for community based forest management and national REDD+ framework and strategy. (3) Management objectives and their management tools, which focus on statement of objectives, forest management zones and forest management units
Conclusions: The management directives formed the basis for the activities planned for the forest for 2012-2017. Also, the management directives should be used as baseline information for assessment of achievement of the planned activities.
