Find Forestry expertise in Tuvalu
Forestry, together with fisheries and agriculture, contribute 17% of Tuvalu’s GDP (2008). Approximately 1000 hectares, or 33%, of Tuvalu’s land area was forested in 2010. The majority of the forests are made up of coconut palms, and in 2010 mangrove forests comprised 40 hectares of this 1000 hectare total. There is no commercial logging on the islands of Tuvalu and thus this percentage of forest cover has been reasonably consistent for a number of years. Forestry management matters in Tuvalu fall under the responsibility of the Ministry of Natural Resources.
