The regional workshop was held in Sarajevo Bosnia and Hercegovina. More than 40 participants attended the workshop from the four project countries: Bosnia and Hercegovina, North Macedonia, Serbia, and Montenegro.
Institutions from the forestry sector, as well as institutions dealing with crime and corruption, the NGO sector, and other relevant actors attended the workshop, where relevant topics of the project were discussed.
All stakeholders presented their views and possibilities for further cooperation in the region, as well as proposals for introducing monitoring mechanisms to fight against forest-related crime and corruption actions.
It was commonly agreed that illegal activities in forestry are something that all countries in the region are facing and that proper communication as well as cooperation on the national and regional level, is crucial for more effective actions towards illegal activities.
