According to the VCA, 40 percent of the cooperatives, cooperative groups and households involved in the forestry sector are expected to have stable consumption markets by 2020.
Around 100 forestry cooperatives are set to meet criteria for sustainable forest management.
Some 1,200 cooperatives and cooperative groups will be introduced to the Law on Forestry and the national standards of sustainable forest management and forest certificates.
Between 10 and 15 cooperatives and two cooperative alliances will be granted with group forest certificates.
According to the VCA, there are some 7,300 forestry cooperatives and 15,000 cooperative groups involved in forest across the country.
