According to the bank document, the project aims to "improve participatory sustainable forest management and increase benefits from forests to communities in target areas.
Target areas include community forests, protected areas (public and community), and priority areas selected for forest restoration on public forest land (in watersheds, on hillsides, mangroves, etc.). Intended direct beneficiaries of project interventions would include community forest user groups, including vulnerable forest dependent communities, and sectoral government institutions. Indirect benefits will also accrue to farmers / rural communities through improved provision of environmental services by forests; national and regional governments; private sector (indirectly through improved enabling environment); and government budgets through enhanced fiscal revenue from value chain developments."
