Forestry in Thailand

In 1985, the National Forest Policy was established in order to manage and develop the forest resources for sustainability and in conformity with the development of other natural resources. In 2002, the Thai Government introduced a structural and administrative reform. As a result, RFD was divided under the Bureaucratic Restructuring Act 2002 into three departments and 75 offices; namely, Royal Forest Department (RFD), Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP), Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMC) and 75 Provincial Natural Resources and Environment Offices. All share responsibilities in forest resources management of the country.
