Over the past decades, progress towards Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) in Africa has been made at national and subregionallevels. At national level, 43 African countries have developed specific forest law and 40 have a national forest policy. At subregionallevel, efforts to harmonize policies and programmeshave resulted in the development of the Convergence Plan of the Central African Forests Commission and the Convergence Plan for the Sustainable Management and Use of Forest Ecosystems in West Africa. However, at regional level, no SFM programme framework for Africa had been formulated. The project aimed to develop an SFM programme framework for Africa, and to enhance the capacities of member countries and Regional Economic Communities (RECs) to sustainably manage and develop their forestry sectors for social and economic development and long-term environmental protection.
