DescriptionThe Swiss National Forest Programme (Swiss NFP) is an action programme at federal level that defines the State's activities in the forest sector and coordinates the sector's cooperation with other sectors. A long-term vision of the desired status of the forest has been developed which is based on an analysis of current problems and trends. Twelve quantified objectives of the year 2015, the strategy for achieving these objectives, the necessary policy instruments and around 100 measures have been derived from this vision. In terms of the programme implementation, the objectives and measures are prioritized and the necessary resources allocated. The Swiss NFP provides the basis for the orientation of federal Swiss forest policy and for the development of a consultation document for the partial revision of the Federal Law on Forests. The Swiss NFP fulfils the international and pan-European requirements for a National Forest Programme. On 31 August 2011, the Swiss NFP 2004-2015 was replaced by the Forest Policy 2020.
