Chisinau, 24 December /MOLDPRES/- The Forest Code of Moldova has been adjusted to the new requirements and challenges faced by the forestry sector, being supplemented with provisions underlying the sustainable management of forests. The draft document was approved this week by the government.
The draft Forest Code aims to ensure the continuity of forests and biodiversity in correlation with the growing conditions of the influence of anthropogenic activity and climate change, and provides new and updated regulations that will contribute to the rational use of forest products.
