Georgia:

Development of National Forest Standards

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Georgia has been developing and refining its Government structure, legislation, regulations and standards to comply with its evolution to a market based economy. Under the Soviet system there were over 400 standards relating to forestry. Under the World Bank Forest Sector Development Project, LTS worked with the State Forest Department through a National Working Group of local counterparts to develop a new set of national standards. As part of the fundamental policy reform, the Group, supported by LTS experts, reviewed existing standards, identified new ones to be established, developed provisions for monitoring and verification of compliance with various standards, prepared a training plan for monitoring and enforcement officials and forest users and elaborated the draft standards.
