EU-funded FLEG II Program has completed. Thank you for being with us and working with us. Our website with all the reports, studies, articles and contact information will remain available till 2026. Let's stay in touch!
The FLEG II Program aimed to improve forest law enforcement and governance in 7 countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia, and Ukraine. FLEG II brought together governments, forest practitioners and managers, forest business, non-timber business, NGOs, educators, and forest-dependent rural communities.
In Armenia and Georgia, FLEG II is also supported by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) with funds of Austrian Development Cooperation. Activities were completed in December 2017
