This activity will help to increase understanding of Western models for investigation, evidence collection and prosecution of forest crimes among law enforcement agencies and others.
The governmental institutions and professional expert groups could require assistance in developing specific legislative proposals (and creating advocacy campaign if needed) aimed at reformation or improvement of forest related legislation for better biodiversity protection, sustainable use of forest resources, management, etc.
Among other possible ways of sharing good practices and knowledge, we work on establishment of such sub-ativities as:
