2) Forestry PolicyUganda's first Forestry Policy was written in 1929. Forestry policy has undergone a series of changes since then, alternating between stricter conservation on the one hand and more liberal economic use of forest resources on the other hand. The last policy review was in 1988, but this contained limited guidance on principles and strategies for implementation, on forestry outside the gazetted reserves, and on the balance between production and conservation. It was also silent on the roles of government, the private sector and rural communities in forestry, and the linkages with other sectors and land uses.
