Georgia Case Study: Prepared for FAO as part of the <i> State of the World’s Forests 2016 </i> (SOFO)








The goal of this document is to put together and to analyze information and materials which have played significant role in improving forest condition and food safety during last 25 years. In the limits of this short-term task it is impossible to carry out full de tailed analysis. Nevertheless, the opportunity to use results of earlier researches has greatly helped correct formulation of basic problems for further discussion.

    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.

    The forest cover of The Gambia comprise of woodland, savannah woodland, mangroves and tree and shrub savannah. The majority of the population depends entirely on these forest types for the supply of various products and services ranging from firewood, poles, construction timber and non timber forest products etc. It also provides a wide range of habitats for both aquatic and terrestrial wildlife.

    Tunisia Case Study: Prepared for FAO as part of the State of the World’s Forests 2016 (SOFO) 2016
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Forests and woody vegetation cover a total surface area of 1.3 million ha in 2015 (FAO 2015) that represents 8% of the country surface area. It includes 1 million ha of forests and 0.3 Million ha of shrubs and other woody area. The forest area has increased from 643,000 ha in 1990 to 1,041,000 ha in 2015 ((FAO 2015) that corresponds to an increase by 62% in the last twenty five years or an annual increase of 1.9%. The most important programs of forest and pastoral plantation were between 1990 an d 2010, with a rhythm of plantation of 22,000 ha annually (FAO 2015), recently, during the period 2010-2014, forest and pastoral expansion concerned only 6,000 ha per year. In the other side, forest fires have affected about one thousand ha per year during the period 1996-2010, and 3167 ha per year on average during the 2011-2014. Similarly, annual deforestation has increased from 400 ha (1996-2010) to 800 ha for the period 2011-2014. It should be indicated that half of the plantation consists o n pastoral plantation. Forest and pastoral plantation is usually conducted in forest area (replanting burned areas when natural regeneration is not possible, reforestation of harvested areas, replacing shrubs (1400 ha per year; FAO 2015)), in agricultural lands (planting the banks of ravines, for soil conservation purposes and for windbreaks), and in the pastoral lands (plantation of forage species).
