The path to sustainable forestry in Russia's Far East

By Christopher  Booth

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) are working together to promote viable forestry investment in Russia's Far East based on sustainable use of forest resources.

The detailed plan for attracting value added investments in a sustainable forest sector was laid out in an Investment Roadmap, developed with the help of local and international experts, NGOs, academia, private sector and government.

Through investment in education for a qualified workforce; development of infrastructure; use of modern harvesting and wood-processing technologies; and improvement of legal frameworks, this important natural resource can be sustainably managed.
