Capacity Building in Central Asia and Caucasus

A greener economy in Central Asia and the Caucasus with sustainable forests

UNDA 8th tranche project

Project


UNECE and FAO have launched a two-year capacity-building project in Central Asia and the Caucasus to increase the potential of that region’s forest sector for “greening” the economy.

The project will provide training and advisory services for government officials who deal with forestry. It will include the following activities:

  • Developing training materials on sustainable forest management in a green economy, on wood energy and on data collection.
  • Holding regional, national and local workshops on:
    • Forest-policy formulation
    • Bioenergy generation from wood
    • Data collection on forests and forests products.
  • Sharing lessons learned and making recommendations through a concluding regional conference.  
  • Creating a web-based hub for knowledge management on forest-related issues.

A coaching programme in three pilot countries (Georgia, Kazakstan and Tajikistan) targets to develop national action plans to improve the forest’s sector contribution to a green economy.

Timeframe and Documents


July 2013 - July 2015

The project will be carried out through UNECE and FAO’s network of entities and experts in that region.
