The EU-funded program "European Neighborhood and Partnership Instrument East Countries Forest Law Enforcement and Governance II Program" is being implemented by the World Bank, International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) for the period of 2013-2016.
The 1st meeting of the National Program Advisory Committee (NPAC) for the ENPI FLEG phase 2, which includes 9 members (representatives of Ministry of Environment, Agency Moldsilva, NGO community, local public authorities and private forest owners), was organized on June 20th in Chisinau. The NPAC approved the Country Work Plan (CWP), which is mainly focused on community forestry development, creating more opportunities at local level, promoting energy forestry, cooperation between governmental forest bodies and other forest owners, improving transparency and supporting professional education of young generation.
The "Strategic Environment and Social Assessment Framework" (SESAF) was approved by NPAC too. The main scope of the SESAF document is to ensure all draft of Policy, Program and Plan (PPP) documents that are going to be prepared within the ENPI FLEG Program will integrate environmental and social aspects under the operational policy of the World Bank.
