Forest Sector Support Department

The Forestry sub-sector is managed by three main institutions: Forestry Sector Support Department (FSSD) of MWE, National Forestry Authority (NFA), the semi-autonomous agency that manages the Central Forest Reserves, and District Forestry Services (DFS) in district Local Governments. In addition, the Private Sector plays an important supporting role, as well as the Civil Society Organisations (CSOs). The CSOs’ performance in forestry management is discussed in Section 13 of this report. Finally, there
are a number of key projects, including the National REDD+ Plus Project, The Sawlog Production Grant Scheme (SPGS), Farm income Enhancement and Forestry conservation Project (FIEFOC), and Enhancing forest tenure and governance in Uganda.
