In Romania, WWF has been working since 2006 for the protection of wildlife and the sustainable development of local communities. The projects carried out so far have focused on responsible forest management, biodiversity conservation and responsible use of natural resources. To all this it is added the stimulation of the transition to the “green economy” and the development of an environmental education program addressed to young people.
The WWF-Romania association has supported the responsible forest management through the implementation of projects at regional level in the last ten years, including by promoting the forest management certification in FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) system as a guarantee of a forest management responsible with international recognition.
The Association for Forest Certification (ACF)
The aim of the Association for Forest Certification (ACF) is to promote the responsible forest management, a credible forest certification system that contributes to the appropriate forest management from an ecological point of view, with social and viable economic benefit, the conservation of the natural environment and the ecological processes in Romania.
ACF is the facilitator of the process of developing the Assessment of Risks for Controlled Wood for Romania.
