    This report was prepared within the framework of the FAO/World Bank Cooperative Programme of the Investment Centre. This study has two overarching goals. First, it provides a critical review of the main features, threats, and challenges faced by forests and forestry in Bolivia regarding the provision of goods and environmental services, and their implications for economic growth, and people’s well being. Second, it offers some key elements contributing to the formulation of a national strate gy aimed at sustainable development of Bolivian forestry. By so doing it provides inputs for a blueprint strategy of the World Bank that seeks to determine which might be the critical actions for helping to achieve sustainable forestry management in the Andean countries. The World Bank forestry policy, launched in 2002, provides general guidelines for the World Bank’s investment support in the forestry sector. This policy, however, needs to be complemented by some country-specific strategies. Th is document helps to such effort by assessing the Bolivian case.The specific objectives of this document are: (1) to carry out an initial assessment of the forest resource-base in the country, and the dynamics underpinning forest management, (2) to critically examine the contents of current forest policy and their implications, and some inter-sectoral linkages, (3) to offer an assessment of the main obstacles impeding the achievement of sector policy objectives, (4) to examine forest policy priorities as stated in the country’s development strategies, and other related legislation, and (5) to suggest relevant areas of interventions harmonizing them with the World Bank priorities. It is expected that the sum of these different objectives will contribute to the design of alternatives for forestry investment in the country that could play an effective role in stimulating an environmentally sound and equitable economic expansion to contribute to poverty alleviation in rural areas.

    Andean Countries: A Strategy for Forestry, Volume I of V . Executive Summary

    To address the needs of individual regions, such as LAC, more detailed regional and sub regional strategies are needed to ensure that forestry contributes fully to the challenges of poverty, inequity, environmental degradation and sustainable development. This report presents such a strategy for four Andean Countries of South America, that is, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. Venezuela could not be included because of time constraints, and the difficulties of obtaining a suitable consultant to carry out the field work.

    Chile Case Study: Prepared for FAO as part of the State of the World’s Forests 2016 (SOFO) 2016

    Chile is considered a high-income developing country. For its nearly 18 million people life quality, economic growth, human development, globalization and per capita GDP are among the highest in Latin America. The forest area, including indigenous forest and plantation forest has been increasing by 18,5 % between 1997 and 2014, reaching 15,9 million hectares representing 21 % of Chile total area (75,7 milliones ha). Today’s forest economy is based on private plantations that grew in 17 years from 1,9 million hectares to 2,4 million hectares (INFOR, 2003 y 20141, 20142). An important part of native forests is represented in the State National System of Protected Areas and is administered by CONAF3, with 36 National Parks, 49 National Reserves and 15 Natural Monuments. Over the past 25 years they have established native forest private reserves. About 2/3 of native forest belongs to privates and the rest to the state.
