Planned Nature-based Action in Adaptation Plan

Risk Management and Climate Change Adaptation in the Forestry Sector.

Revision and development of new important components of the forestry regulatory basis, as integral parts of the forestry regime, focusing on: maintenance and conservation of forestry stations; conservation of forestry genetic resources; ecological reconstruction of forests; certification of forests, forest products and forest management systems.

Development and approval of the regulation on implementation and assuring functionality of the principles of participatory management of public forest resources.

Develop methodologies/technologies to assure forest ecosystems adaptability to climate change.

Increasing the forest cover, including in the climate change context mitigation and biodiversity conservation.

Protect wetlands, allowing groundwater recharge and reduce peak discharges downstream.
