Who We Are

Ekiti State Forestry Commission was established under the Ekiti State Forest Law of 2016, as successor to the Forestry Department inherited when the State was created. It embeds a more stakeholder-involved and longer-term structure to enable better management of forest resources in Ekiti State. As well as having direct managerial control of nine (9) Forest Reserves in the State, the Forestry Commission is the regulator of forests outside the reserves, and revenue collection agency for the timber and charcoal sectors. Our role involves policy, implementation, enforcement, planning, consultation and the promotion of afforestation, agroforestry, biodiversity and sustainable timber development. To do this we partner with the private sector, NGOs, communities, academic and research institutions, and global partners, as well as with other Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of the Ekiti State Government.

Our vision

The vision of the Commission is to make Ekiti State the sub-national leader on forests and afforestation in Nigeria, and to provide an ambitious pathway for the development of the forest resources of Ekiti State to deliver continual and sustained environmental, economic, social and livelihood benefits for present and future generations.
