Assessing forestry law enforcement, governance and trade in Africa
This report by the African Natural Resources Centre examines the progress made by African countries to enforce forest law and governance, under the <em>Forest Law Enforcement and Governance programme</em>. The report, which was based on an extensive qualitative research, examines national strategies and looks at how African countries are carrying out voluntary partnership agreements in line with the European Union Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade Action Plan. The report showcases the existing opportunities to integrate export and import markets within Africa by promoting intra-African trade of timber products within an informal framework. It suggests intra-African trade of timber products can produce substantial benefits to people living both in timber exporting and timber importing countries. The report further highlights the relevant value added that the African Development Bank can bring to improve legality and governance in the timber value chains.Read more

How Forestry contributes to the African Development Bank's 'High 5s' Priorities: challenges and opportunities
African forests span over 21 to 23 percent of the continent’s total land mass. However, forest endowments vary across the different regions and countries of Africa, with far higher proportions in the continent’s central and southern regions. The analysis in this paper provides greater evidence of the numerous contributions of forestry to the African Development Bank’s “<link en/the-high-5/>High 5</link>” development priorities. The paper stresses that forestry has tremendous potential to contribute to the green economy and increase household as well as state revenues in African countries. It further pinpoints that the realisation of these opportunities depends on the governance of the forest industry, the ways in which forests are managed, the need for increased local value addition to primary forest products, and the need to promote intra-African trade in forest products.&nbsp;Read more

Assessing progress in the implementation of forest law enforcement and governance (FLEG) action plan in Africa African Natural Resources Center - Study Report
This report aims to initiate the process of supporting timber-exporting African countries in combating illegal timber harvesting and trade. It focuses, in particular, on Forest Law Enforcement and Governance (FLEG) national strategies and the implementation of European Union Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade Voluntary Partnership Agreements (EU-FLEGT VPAs). The report is largely based on a desk review of the global forestry practices and the technical and institutional aspects of VPA ratification, as well as current constraints to ratification. Three African countries (Côte d’Ivoire, Gabon and Liberia) were specifically studied in field research. Indonesia, possibly the most advanced country in VPA implementation worldwide, was also studied.Read more

Jointly produced by the African Natural Resources Center of the AfDB and Open Oil, a boutique financial advisory firm, the study begins with the simple notion that no investor would ever approach an investment decision on an extractive project without the backing of a comprehensive financial model. Such a model would link expected production profile, prices, capital and operating expenditure and corporate tax rates to the projected cash flow of the project and its profitability. The authors conducted a survey of nearly 50 government officials to illustrate how widespread use of financial models is and how their results are used to inform policy.Read more
