Drawing up a guide to understand Armenian forest laws


A manual to interpret and explain Armenian forest legislation is being developed by WWF Armenia, with a series of training courses to follow under the EU-funded forestry project ENPI-FLEG. The manual is targeted not only at government sectors, NGOs and private companies, but also at the general public.

The manual will contain practical examples and references to relevant by-laws and other legal documents, along with detailed explanations on important legal topics such as environmental inspection, violations and the criminal code. There will also be annexes with relevant legal documents and sources (mainly Internet links).

A series of training courses for interested parties in the Lori, Tavush, Gegharkunik, Syunik, Kotayk and Yerevan regions of Armenia will be held following publication. In addition to learning about forestry legislation, participants will have the opportunity to discuss forestry-related cases.

The €6 million ENPI Forest Law Enforcement and Governance (FLEG) programme supports governments, civil society and the private sector in the development of sound and sustainable forest management practices, including the prevention of illegal forestry activities. (ENPI Info Centre)
