Central American countries articulate program in favor of forests

By Carlemy Salinas

The Central American countries announced that they will combine efforts for an environmental strategy that allows the region's natural resources to be managed in a sustainable manner.

The actions will be framed in the Regional Strategic Program for the Management of Forest Ecosystems (PERFOR) and those in charge of executing the coordination of the efforts will be the Central American Commission for Environment and Development (CCAD) and the Central American Agricultural Council (CAC). Both are sectoral bodies of the Central American Integration System (SICA).

PERFOR has been viewed by the authorities as an instrument that “organizes, complements and operates” the region's policies and strategies related to forests and the use of their production. It is a coordination structure that will also be able to guarantee the sustainable management and resources from forests in each country.

The Ministry of the Environment of El Salvador and the representatives of the Central American organizations involved presented the program yesterday in San Salvador.
