Forests. 1. Powers and responsibilities in the sphere of Forests in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip shall be transferred from the military government and its Civil Administration to the Palestinian side. This sphere includes, inter alia, the establishment, administration, supervision, protection, and preservation of all forests (planted and unplanted).
Forests. 181. Forthwith upon the execution of this Agreement and until December 31, 2012, at the latest, the Crees and Québec shall negotiate the harmonization of the Adapted Forestry Regime and the Sustainable Forest Development Act. These negotiations shall take place at the Cree-Québec Table on the Development of the Adapted Forestry Regime and Other Forestry Issues, in particular the Adapted Forestry Regime, established pursuant to the letter of November 30, 2009 from the then vice-première ministre Xxxxxxxx Xxxxxxxxxx to Grand Chief Xxxxxxx Xxxx Come.
Forests. 1. The Parties shall promote sustainable forest management and use of forest resources. They shall halt deforestation and forest degradation, and combat illegal logging and associated trade.
Forests. Forest operations are compatible with hunting, fishing and trapping activities. Commercial cutting programs in Category ll lands will be defined according to management plans elaborated by the Quebec Department of Lands and Forests, which shall take into consideration the hunting, fishing and trapping activities. Operations must respect Quebec standards and the general regime for forest protection will be applicable.
Forests. In many developing countries forests are a valuable source of income to rural people and a major reservoir of biodiversity. The Commission’s strategic framework, its Communication on “Forest and development: the EC approach”10, stresses that sustainable forest management would make a significant contribution to economic, social and environmental development, especially in developing countries. The Communication emphasizes the need for good governance as a prerequisite to ensure sustainable management of forests, and notes that a participatory approach of particular importance given the number of stakeholder groups directly involved. The poverty-environment interface, at the centre of the WSSD agenda, is particularly evident in forestry activities. In Johannesburg the Commission made a strong commitment to work in partnership with developing countries to combat illegal logging and the associated trade in illegally harvested timber. To build on this commitment, the Commission is now implementing an EU Action Plan for Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT)11. The Commission is taking an active role in helping to shape two major partnerships for forests announced in Johannesburg, the Asia Forest Partnership and the Congo Basin Forest Partnership. Within the Strategic Partnership, regular dialogue between the EC and FAO would enable both institutions to enhance synergies in their development policies in relation to forestry, in the fields of forest policy development, enforcement and implementation, with the aim of contributing to sustainable forest management. In addition, operational activities could be designed with the following objectives:

Forests. IN THE CHES APEAKE BAY REGION IN 1999 Forests: A Key to the Bay’s Health The health of streams and rivers and the resilience of the Chesapeake Bay watershed is linked to trees. Forests perform important environmental functions that we sometimes take for granted. Forests protect our streams and soil; clean our air and water; provide opportunities for outdoor recreation; supply habitat and food important to the survival of many Bay species; and supply raw materials for the fuel, lumber and paper that we use every day. Scientific findings clearly show that, as living filters, forests are the most beneficial land use for clean water. Losses Offset Gains Forests make up nearly 60% of the land in the Bay water- shed or approximately 24 million acres. The U.S. Forest Service estimates that more than 100 acres of forest are lost every day, with the most rapid declines in areas closest to the Bay. Refor- estation has generated some gains in the headwater regions of the watershed, though other areas have seen more than 85% of forest cover converted to agriculture or urban development. A major cause of forest loss today is the way we develop land. Forests are cleared to make room for new homes, shop- ping malls, roads and other types of development. We now develop land at a rate much faster than our population is grow- ing, sprawling across the landscape and requiring more forests and farms to be cleared. By 2020, new homes could consume more than 600,000 acres of forests and farmland. Planning to retain forests as we grow will be one of the big challenges of the next millennium. Defining Impacts of Forest Fragmentation When large tracts of forest are carved up into smaller and more isolated patches, forest fragmentation is the result. Frag- mentation is most serious when forests are converted to urban development or agriculture because those types of land use affect water quality and quantity, fish and wildlife populations, and the biological health and diversity of the forest itself. Fragmentation can disrupt animal travel corridors, increase flooding, increase the invasion of non-native vegetation, expose forest interiors and create conflicts between people and wildlife. Experts have found that even small habitat losses occurring over time have a combined effect and may prove as dramatic as one large loss. The Chesapeake Bay Program highlighted forest fragmentation as an important issue in 1999. The following are highlights from some of the programs and projects r...
