The Global Forestry Division drives three core research themes, namely ‘Global Forest Policy Evaluation’, ‘International Forest Cooperation’, and ‘Inter-Korean Forest Cooperation’. In detail, our division has planned the strategies and evaluations on the global forest policy under the theme of ‘Global Forest Policy Evaluation’, as well as the SDGs and ESG assessments, REDD+ studies and the models of Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) for developing countries.
Under the ‘International Forest Cooperation’ theme, our division has conducted research studies on seeking forest-related international cooperation agenda and copes with international forestry conventions and frameworks, as well as developed Qualitative and Quantitative evaluation index on bi-and multi-lateral Official Development Assistance (ODA) projects. In terms of the ‘Inter-Korean Forest Cooperation’ sector, the Division has collected and analyzed the geographic and scientific data of North Korean forests. Our division also has conducted researches on the trend of policies and the reforestation strategies on North Korean forests for supporting effective Inter-Korean forestry cooperation, including the policy sector.
