METADATA
TitleField Reports from Siberia and the Russian Far East
CreatorForests Monitor; Bureau for Regional Outreach and Campaigns (BROC); Friends of Siberian Forests (FSF)
DescriptionIllegal logging is one of the most significant threats facing Russian forests. Forests Monitor, together with two partner NGOs based in Eastern Russia, Bureau for Regional Outreach and Campaigns (BROC) and Friends of Siberian Forests (FSF), launched a project to build civil society capacity to monitor illegal logging and the timber trade. The reports from the field carried out by BROC and FSF during 2003-2004 are available, along with the final reports and recommendation of the project. The final report includes analyses of: the Russian-Asian Timber Market; forest governance issues; and the draft Forest Code for Russia. The project aimed to create a cadre of committed NGOs in the region who can produce accurate documentation on cases of illegal logging in order to raise awareness locally, nationally and internationally about the scale of the problem and to provide an effective way of supporting official enforcement measures. The project was part of Forests Monitor's ongoing programme to build civil society capacity to monitor the forestry sector.
