FOREST INVENTORY AND ELABORATION OF A COMMUNAL INVENTORY METHODOLOGY
The GCCA Mali Project aims to support the Republic of Mali for the development of a sustainable environment, by integrating the sustainable development principles into country policies to reverse the environmental resources loss.
The overall objective of this inventory is to contribute to a better understanding of heritage timber forest in order to develop strategies and effective planning and sustainable management tools of forest resources in Mali.
The specific objectives of this forest inventory are:
- To provide the National Directorate of Forestry, local authorities and other stakeholders with decision support tools (wood heritage, vegetation maps, land use maps, grazing maps) for sustainable management of timber resources in the fourth Mali regions and to determine the potential carbon sequestration from timber;
- to define a methodology for municipal forest inventory for user benefit;
- to conduct a pilot forest inventory in two municipalities for each region
- to define an evaluation strategy for different forest formations at regional and municipal level.
