Find Forestry expertise in Pakistan

Due to its arid and semi-arid climate, only 2% of Pakistan is forested and most of this is located in the Punjab region (2007). This amounts to 4 million hectares of naturally forested land, of which the majority (66%) is publically owned.

Forestry products and logging generated revenues of $135 million for companies in Pakistan (2005) and the industry employed 30,000 people in 2000. This sector has declined steadily every year from 2004 to 2011, although it rose by 2.2% in 2010.

Pakistan is a signatory of many international environmental treaties, such as the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification. The Ministry of Environment is responsible for forestry and sustainable management of logging.
