This Policy Note discusses the status of
Forestry in the Middle East and North Africa Region (MNA) of
the Bank. The Policy Note is a product of the FAO Investment
Center in Rome, the International Food Policy Research
Institute (IFPRI) and the Bank. Experience in natural
resource management shows that to adequately address
sustainable development, solutions must go beyond any single
sector, and be cross-sectoral. They must also go beyond
technical solutions to include legal and policy frameworks.
In the MNA Region, a large percentage of the population
lives in rural areas on primarily small pieces of land and
in the absence of other sources of revenue to supplement
their income. Also because many do not own their land, they
are without the means to improve their small land areas to
increase output and revenues, thus creating a dependence on
the natural resources.
