The FINANCIAL — The EU-funded FLEG forestry programme has published a study explaining the new anti-corruption legislation in Ukraine and how it affects the forestry sector.
The study is aimed at helping foresters and all interested parties to understand the new legislation and prevent potential breaches of the law, particularly to prevent corruption in forestry issues, according to Euro East.
The study includes a comparative analysis of the old and new laws, showing how most of the previous norms have changed in the new law, and some have been introduced for the first time.
FLEG experts have also conducted a series of seminars on the subject for foresters, who do not have the legal background to interpret new rules.
The €9 million ENPI FLEG II programme deepens reforms in forestry policy, and legal and administrative matters in the sector while carrying out pilot projects, and addressing forest fire and climate issues. It builds upon the achievements of its predecessor, ENPI FLEG I programme.
