Nicaragua and Honduras have signed a forestry agreement to ensure the protection and control of the woodlands in the border area.
Friday, June 27, 2008
The letter of understanding was signed by the Nicaragua Forestry Institute and the Institute of Forest Conservation of Honduras.
The Government and the private sector have signed an agreement to promote commercial reforestation, restoration of forest-culture and sustainable forest management.
Through a decree the Ortega government has authorized the lifting for one year of the ban on harvesting, utilization and marketing of wood from pine trees in the country.
A voluntary agreement is already underway with the European Union to reduce trade in timber goods made from illegal logging.
The ban on cutting, using, and selling forest resources has been extended for ten more years, with the exception of pine trees.
