Despatch within 5 days
World Bank Technical Paper 251F. French edition ("Strategie pour le secteur forestier en Afriqiue subsaharienne").
Presents new strategies for protecting forests in Sub-Saharan Africa and underlines the importance of the region's natural resources to its economic development.
Forest resources in Sub-Saharan Africa are disappearing at an alarming rate--the region witnessed a 7 percent loss of its forest cover during the 1980s. The deforestation of tropical rain forests in West and Central Africa is occurring at a rate of 2 million hectares each year. The poor usually suffer the most in the short run--but it is the entire world community that suffers in the long run from the ensuing ecological damage. This strategy paper is one element of the World Bank's process of addressing environmental issues and challenges.
The paper adheres to the Bank's forest policy adopted in 1991, which reaffirms the Bank's support for conservation and sustainable development of forest resources. The authors emphasize the importance of the symbiosis of forest resource management and socioeconomic development for the region.
