Forest Sector Study of the Russian Far East

The Forest Sector Study of the Russian Far East is an initiative of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), as part of EBRD activities in the forest-product sector of the Russian Federation. EBRD has engaged the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to implement the Study in collaboration with Indufor, an independent forest consulting company. The Study was funded jointly by EBRD Special Shareholder Fund and FAO.

FAO Forestry Department and Indufor carried out the study with the help of Russian Federal Forest Agency, Rosstat, Russian Customs Office, local forest administrations and scientists, NGOs, and international and Russian forest industry experts. Detailed assessments were made on policy frameworks, use and management of forest resources, and on market potentials. Situation Analysis and conceptual feasibility studies were prepared in order to understand better the financial viability of potential investments in new sawmilling, particleboard, glulam and liquid biofuel production.
