Africa is home to many rapidly developing economies, extensive natural resources and remarkable ecological diversity. Forests are among Africa’s most important natural resources, ecologically and economically.
As the demand for wood products continues to increase, forestry businesses face increasing pressure to tackle degradation and deforestation issues in the areas they manage. This has led to an increase in sustainable forestry across Africa as businesses evolve and adopt new working practices.
Foreign direct investments have increased rapidly in the forestry industry; in order to achieve the return of investment they require through improved operational capacity, while balancing the demands of key stakeholders, strong management is critical.
Forestry talent is in high demand. Millar Cameron’s natural resources team has partnered many progressive African forestry businesses equipping them with the leaders who can drive a more sustainable forestry sector, through robust leadership and strong governance.
