The two projects are coping with two key challenging issues:
Theme 1: Forest management planning, monitoring and management practices
Addressing deficiencies in these areas can effectively help optimize the economic functions of forests and address current challenges such as strengthening ecosystem services in the forest. Theme 1 was developed during the first cooperation project between 2015 and August 2017.
Theme 2: Vocational training and practical postgraduate training programs:
These are deficiencies in the technical qualifications of the staff responsible for planning and operational implementation (engineers, forest technicians, forestry workers). Without modern, practice-oriented education and training for all professional levels, the implementation of improved management concepts is not possible. The improvement of post-graduate training, the systematic training of forest workers and the improvement of the practical relevance of curricula at all levels are now the subject of the second cooperation project (2017-2019).
