Forest Sector Charter

5. Key principles

5.6 Shared Vision for the Industry


All role players need to commit to a shared vision for the forest industry and seek win-win approaches to tackling the transformation challenges arising. This needs to be underpinned by a common understanding of the challenges facing the sector and its sub-sectors, and a commitment to implement the strategies and instruments for sustainable growth and broad-based empowerment throughout the forestry value chain. This Charter represents the sector stakeholders' shared vision for broad-based empowerment with growth for the Forest Sector, namely:

An  inclusive  and  equitable  Forest  Sector  in which  black  women  and  men  fully participate.
A Forest Sector that is characterised by sustainable use of resources, sustainable growth, international competitiveness and profitability for all its participants.
A Forest Sector that contributes meaningfully to poverty eradication, job creation, rural development and economic value-adding activities in the country.
