Forest Sector Council of Lviv Region: questions and answers

At the end of November this year, a round table was held at UNFU, where the members of the Forest Sector Council of Lviv region exchanged views on urgent issues regarding the situation in the forest.

Official name of the round table was "Political and economic analysis of forestry in the furniture and wood processing sectors in Ukraine". The event was organized by UNFU scientists as a part of the USAID “Competitive Economy Program”. The program aims to analyze the state of forest management: from logging and supplying chains to competition and trade issues. The task is to find out what impedes sustainable forest management and equitable access to resources for furniture and woodworking businesses. The ultimate goal of the program is to engage international analysts, investors and provide them with the information they need to develop a “roadmap” for the development of our timber sector.erasmos 19.12 3
