By Aaron Humes: Cabinet continues its review of a proposed moratorium on logging permits for extraction of timber from Crown land.

According to CEO of the Ministry of Sustainable Development Kenrick Williams, the proposal was made some time ago and the Forest Department was tasked with assessing the situation.

“We did some initial assessments to look at the demand in terms of the local supply, what is the current stock and we are to go back to Cabinet to present the case as to what is the current context,” Williams explained.

If the Government chooses to go ahead with the moratorium, Williams continued, Belize will have to import lumber: “We have to do a comprehensive assessment to inform, then, the system that we will implement to supplement the national lumber once we are not extracting from our national resources.”
