The Winter Newsletter 2014/15 is the third in the series and following on from the research reported in the last edition features the results of that research. The results of the Forestry Dependence Study of over 1250 households in forest communities in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia, and Ukraine takes the front seat, but there are also details of surveys in Russia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia. The FLEG II Program’s ongoing commitment to improving Forestry Governance continues, with new laws, new cross border cooperation and better access to information. Moldova has led the way on activities for the young, when primary school children were taken out into the forest for a day, a new forest manual and events also feature.
In the Spring Newsletter we will bring you the views of Key FLEG II players and we always welcome your views and appreciate your feedback, so keep in touch.
