IMPLEMENTATION OF THE HELSINKI RESOLUTION H3
The Second Ministerial Conference on the Protection of Forests in Europe (MCPFE), held in Helsinki in 1993, adopted Resolution H3, which concerns Forestry assistance to countries with economies in transition, and wherein signatory countries and the European Union made a number of commitments in this respect. The mandate to monitor forestry activities aimed at the implementation of Resolution H3 was entrusted to UNECE/FAO Timber Branch in Geneva. The key tool for monitoring and coordination of activities in this area is an Access database, which was developed by the Timber Branch with the direct input from the signatory countries.
All those interested in developing partnerships or contributing resources to further development of the H3 database are invited to contact the UNECE/FAO Timber Branch in Geneva.
