UNECE/FAO to help Kazakhstan develop action plan for forest sector in green economy

Bishkek (AKIpress) - 9baf2eaa292beca851dea380c3f93181 The joint UNECE/FAO Forestry and Timber Section has been requested by the Ministry of Environment and Water Resources of Kazakhstan to assist its Committee of Forestry and Hunting to support the elaboration of its forestry development programme and action plan, with a view to enhance its contribution to a green economy.

The programme should be ready by November 2014. In response to this request a national workshop was held in Astana from 14-16 April to train forestry experts on the green economy concept and on forest policy formulation. The workshop was followed by a coaching seminar on action planning, the press service of the UNECE reported.

This project is carried out in the framework of the two-year United Nations Development Account (UNDA) project on Sustainable Forest Management for Central Asia and the Caucasus jointly implemented by UNECE and FAO.

With this initiative Kazakhstan will be the first country to pilot the preparation and implementation of a national action plan to enhance the contribution of its forest sector to a green economy. The initiative is part of Kazakhstan’s Green Economy Concept 2020, adopted in 2013.

The work will be inspired by the Rovaniemi Action Plan for the Forest Sector in a Green Economy, endorsed by member States at the joint session of the UNECE Committee on Forests and the Forest Industry (COFFI) and the FAO European Forestry Commission (EFC) that took place last December 2013 in Finland.
