In recognition of challenges facing the forest sector, partner states of East African Community (EAC) have been developing and implementing programs, strategies, policies and legislations to attain sustainable forests conservation and management. Despite these developments, forests are facing numerous challenges that threaten and undermine their potential contribution in conservation, poverty alleviation and economic development objectives.
To respond to the shortfall, the EAC Partner States have embarked on the process to develop regional forest policy and strategy to, among other things, maximize the contribution of forest sector in improving people’s livelihoods, conservation and economic prosperity across the region.
The East African Community (EAC) Secretariat, in partnership with World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is inviting interested and eligible Individual Consultants/firms to submit their technical and financial proposals to undertake consultancy to develop EAC Forestry Policy and Strategy.
