A governação florestal em Moçambique é um tema de destaque nos últimos tempos. No final dos anos 90 e início de 2000 houve um movimento intenso no sector florestal para adequar as políticas e o quadro legal sobre a gestão de florestas. Este movimento contribuiu para alinhar as políticas nacionais com os padrões internacionais, particularmente sobre o desenvolvimento sustentável, a partilha de benefícios com as comunidades residentes na floresta, a contribuição do sector florestal para os Objectivos de Desenvolvimento do Milénio, entre outros.
