St. Lucia Launches 10-Year Strategy to Regulate Use of Forests

SAN JUAN – The government of St. Lucia announced Tuesday the launch of a 10-year plan to regulate the use and conservation of defined forest areas.

The key priorities for National Forest Strategy are maintaining healthy ecosystems and species, ensuring sustainable flows of products that support local economies and biodiversity, and promoting awareness and cultural enhancement of the forest areas, the Ministry of Sustainable Development said in a statement.

The plan will also provide protection to water supplies and coastal zones while ensuring “resilience to climate change.”

Chief Forest Officer Adams Toussaint said the Forestry Department intends to work with various partners to foster sustainable use of defined forest areas in support of livelihoods while maintaining biodiversity.

St. Lucia, south of Martinique, has more than 180,000 inhabitants.
