The RDF Forestry Rights program enables governments to administer resource concessions and manage the associated revenue streams and fees in an accountable and transparent manner. Alongside RDF’s extensive consultancy experience in this sector, the Forestry Concessions Administration System (FCAS) helps governments to collect, collate and integrate vast and diverse data to provide a comprehensive picture of resource use to support the sustainable management of these valuable national assets. Furthermore, by enabling governments to enforce the rules and regulations governing resources, the RDF Forestry Rights program helps generate a positive investment environment.
Our program also links up with several international initiatives focused on raising international standards of transparency in natural resource management. Currently RDF supports the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) and is developing similar links with the European Commission’s Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) Programme.
