Find Forestry expertise in Zambia

Agriculture, forestry and fisheries contribute 20% of GDP (2007). Forest covers 57% of the total land area (2005), forest cover having shrunk by 0.9% per annum during 1990-2005. During the 2000s, the government sought to privatise the state-owned sawmills and establish a national Forestry Commission to take over responsibility of forestry from the Department of Forestry, Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives. The Lumber Millers’ Association of Zambia is an industry body.
