The People Behind the Projects - Interview with Richard Aishton - We do exactly what we say
The forest is not just about wood-cutting. It harbours animals, biodiversity, water; it prevents erosion. The EU-funded Forest Law Enforcement and Governance (ENA–FLEG) project is trying to make people realize and encourage them to develop policy that sustains this precious resource. It's a long road, says Richard Aishton, IUCN ENPI-FLEG Programme Coordinator, and we know we will not achieve it in our lifetimes but it's important to start out and move towards that goal.
This is part of “The People behind the Projects”, a series of interviews with leaders of EU projects, funded by the ENPI Regional Programme, available in English and Russian
