    Description

    Only a few countries in the South Pacific are large enough for industrial forestry to be a key component of the national economy, but forests provide benefits to many people. The United Nations FA0 South Pacific Forestry Development Programme was established in April 1988, at Port Vila, Vanuatu, with a $385,000 budget, and 14 nations participating. The Programme's aim is to "upgrade the status of forestry in the participating countries." The Programme, which extended to December 1991 with a budget totaling $1,046,121, has carried out a variety of development activities, including training, documentation, resource assessments, and species trials. Extension of the Programme beyond 1991 has not yet been decided. A number of projects that it could support have been proposed.
