Analysis of Demand and Supply of Wood Products in Kenya
Carbon emissions from deforestation and forest degradation contribute significantly to the global climate change problem. REDD+ has been identified as one of the innovative mechanism with potential to significantly reduce forest sector emissions in developing tropical countries and therefore contribute to global climate change mitigation efforts. Developing countries that voluntarily opt to participate in REDD+ will be expected to formulate effective REDD+ strategies to support implementation. A number of analytical studies have been proposed in Kenya to provide information necessary for the strategy formulation process. Information on supply and demand of forest wood products in Kenya is currently lacking and has been proposed as one of the studies to be done.
This study was commissioned to provide information on current wood supply potential, current potential demand, critical analysis of supply and demand interactions, forecasting of future demand and supply and policy and legal environment affecting supply and demand. The Study approaches adopted include literature reviews, workshops, stakeholder consultations, Focus Group Discussions and site visits
