The 2000 strategy for sustainable forest development in Ecuador promotes actions for conservation and sustainable use of forests; however, it does not set out either explicitly or specifically what the forest sector strategies will be with regard to REDD+ (due to the fact that it was drawn up many years before a National REDD+ Strategy was conceived), nor regarding other sectors which might affect the forests. It is not known whether the updated document addresses these issues.
In 2011 the Under-Secretariat for Natural Heritage of the Ministry of Environment (MAE) published a document which explains and defines the Ecuadorian forest governance model. In 2012, the Secretariat for forest production at the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Aquaculture and Fisheries has been working to create a national forestation and reforestation policy. An event was carried out in Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas to share the themes of the policy, but details from this event are not known. The event was broadly focussed on forest owners and civil society. Two organisations closely involved in the subject of forest policy are the FAO and GIZ.
