    Policy description Through the Forest Code of 2006, the responsibility of managing the country forests has been given to the provinces and their respective authorities. This responsibility has been transferred between the provinces and the federal authorities many times over the years, leading to difficulties in action for forest conservation and regenerations.

    As a result of the strong fires in 2010, the Forestry Program to 2020 was introduced to finance forest fire protection.
