The FOREST EUROPE Liaison Unit Bonn successfully implemented the Ministerial Decision “Supporting the recovery and sustainable management of Ukrainian forests and its forest sector,” endorsed during the High-Level Policy Dialogue in 2022 and based on the needs shared by the official authorities last year.
The initiative enabled signatories, observers, and international and Ukrainian experts to join their efforts about the support necessary for the recovery of Ukrainian forests through a series of workshops (see the picture below about the fire management one). The experts were able to present their own projects and initiatives and discuss possible support necessary in the country. These exchanges further stimulate the work of the partners and the FOREST EUROPE Secretariat in proposing a list of policy recommendations.
The final report published by the Liaison Unit Bonn today is the result of a review, based on official information, done by the main author Liubov Poliakova, supported by Silvia Abruscato, Santiago Alarcon, and the entire FOREST EUROPE Liaison Unit Bonn team. This successful work involved the consultation of several experts in the field, as well as signatories and observers of the FOREST EUROPE process.
