The FINANCIAL -- A summer camp will bring together young foresters from Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine in Azerbaijan from 2-9 August in the framework of the EU-funded forestry programme FLEG II.

 

The main goal of the camp is to foster cooperation and joint initiatives among the young foresters through meetings, excursions, field trips and research, as well as leisure-time, according to Euro East.

"The main aim of the upcoming young foresters' summer camp is to foster development of the young foresters' network regionally. We believe that this event will be a good platform to discuss future join initiatives and common plans," said FLEG II Country Coordinator Azer Garayev.

The €9 million ENPI FLEG II programme deepens reforms in forestry policy, and legal and administrative matters in the sector while carrying out pilot projects, and addressing forest fire and climate issues. It builds upon the achievements of its predecessor, ENPI FLEG I programme.
