Publication: Ukraine Country Forest Note: Growing Green and Sustainable Opportunities
Ukraine’s forest sector has untapped potential to contribute to environmental stability, economic growth, and the well-being of its citizens. The present government which came into power in 2020 is moving ahead on critical reforms in different sectors to strengthen the foundations for development and growth. This is an opportune time to realize the forest sector’s full potential. The objective of this note is to strengthen the dialog with Ukraine on the forest sector in light of the ongoing reforms in the country. It explores how the sector can increase its contribution to the post-pandemic economic recovery. It presents an overview of the sector and outlines opportunities to increase jobs and value added. It also looks at opportunities for a stronger forest based green economy through the revival of wood processing industry. Short term and long-term policy, institutional and technical management actions are presented as the basis for a long-term partnership with Ukraine.
