This Act makes amendments to the Forestry Act consequential to the entry into force of the Customary Land Act, 2016. It inserts in section 2 the definition of the "customary land committee" and "local government authority" and amends section 26 by inserting the words "the Minister responsible for physical planning," immediately after the words "the Minister responsible for land matters", section 30 by replacing the words "any village headman' with the words " a customary land committee" and section 32 by replacing "District Councils" with "local government authorities". Section 26 concerns declaration of protected forest areas, section 30 concerns demarcation of village forest areas and section 32 concerns the power of the Minister to make rules which shall apply to all customary land outside forest reserves and protected forest areas.
