The forestry sector in Moldova faces
significant governance and sustainability challenges. The
insufficient level of forest coverage in Moldova has a
serious impact on environment and overall economic growth in
the country. The situation is exacerbated by the reportedly
intense pressure on forest resources exerted by the human
factor. Illegal logging and grazing are considered as
significant factors that contribute to forest loss. There is
a lack of public demand for sustainable forest management.
Social accountability (SA) has been recognized as an
effective mechanism to improve government service delivery
and enhance developmental impact. SA mechanisms entail a
broad range of approaches that enable citizens to access
governmental information, lodge grievances and receive
redress, oversee the provision of governmental services, and
take an active part in management and decision-making
processes. This report aims to review SA mechanisms that are
currently available in the forestry sector in Moldova and
identify opportunities for improvement.
