2 The Saint Lucia Forestry Department has embarked on a process … new forest sector management plan. National Forest Demarcation & Bio-Physical Resource Inventory Project Banana Industry Trust/ Ministry of Agriculture, Lands, Forestry & Fisheries Important in the management plan will be redefining the department’s mission to conform to an ecosystem approach to the management of forest resources.

3 Prerequisites to plan formulation and implementation are delineation of the forest resource, and determining the quantity and quality/ nature/ characteristics of the biophysical resources. National Forest Demarcation & Bio-Physical Resource Inventory Project Banana Industry Trust/ Ministry of Agriculture, Lands, Forestry & Fisheries To plan what to do where, you’ve got to know where is what.
