Towards Progressive Forest Sector in North-West Russia

The project was a consortium project under the title 'Towards progressive forest sector in North-West Russia', consisting of four subprojects:

The first subproject, led by Olli Saastamoinen, focused on the role of forest policy, legislation, and national forest programmes in Russia.

The second subproject was led by Timo Karjalainen and the focus was on technology transfer for efficient and sustainable forest management and wood procurement in Northwest Russia.

Multi-client Study on Forest Product Trade Flows

The first aim of this project is to make a multiclient study on the most important international trade flows of forest products during 1983-1996 with respective trends. The identification of these flows will be decided in consultation with relevant potential clients, DG's of European Commission and a few consulting companies.

The second aim is to respond to the forthcoming demand by consulting companies and other clients and produce individually tailored sets of data and maps on trade flows by quantities, values and unit values.

Impacts of Reduction of Illegal Logging in European Russia on the EU and European Russia Forest Sector and Trade

The main objectives of the study were to extend the existing knowledge of the nature and magnitude of illegal logging in Western part of Russia, to analyse the effectiveness of existing instruments regarding the exclusion of illegally logged timber from the EU market, and to analyse the impacts of potential changes in the forest products chain in the European Union as a result of implementing a Voluntary Partnership Agreement, due to a reduction of illegal logging in European Russia or diversion of trade to other markets.

FPTFA - Forest Products Trade Flow Analysis

The project aimed to further develop the standardised Forest Products Trade Flow database, to utilise the existing database information on forest products trade and market analyses, as well as on research on forest products trade and to build a service for EFI where the standardised Forest Products Trade Flow database could be used as a initial source of information for various research and commercial purposes.
