Dry woodlands restoration in Pakistan's Punjab province
This detailed report shows progress in a particularly important area of dryland biodiversity – the dry forests of Pakistan. BGCI in partnership with the Department of Botany, Sustainable Development Study Centre and Botanic Garden of Government College University Lahore developed a pilot action programme for the conservation and restoration of dry woodlands in Pakistan’s Punjab province. Important aspects of this have been to work with local community and forestry department representatives to encourage wide participation in restoration. It has also been important to promote the use of indigenous species, and to explore the potential for new plant-based products and markets.
