The European Business Association is pleased to announce that the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has approved the National Forestry Inventory Procedure, which regulates the procedures for conducting a national forest inventory and regulates the powers and responsibilities of central executive bodies.
In Ukraine, state forest accounting was conducted only in 1996 and 2011. Currently, there is no relevant information about the forests of Ukraine, in particular, there are no statistically reliable estimates of quantitative and qualitative indicators of the state of forests, their dynamics, and resource potential.
The national inventory of forests in Ukraine will allow collecting and systematizing data on forests on a national scale for strategic planning of industry development, as well as better management of forestries, state forest cadastre, and forest monitoring.
Accurate management of forest resources requires accurate data on their quantitative and qualitative characteristics. The inventory will allow the obtained data on the actual forest cover of the state, total wood stocks in forests, and its technical suitability, which in turn will help to form a strategy for the development of both forest and woodworking industries for years to come.
We thank the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources of Ukraine and the State Agency of Forest Resources of Ukraine for their efforts to implement the national inventory!
