The National Forest Management Information System (NFMIS) is being practiced in both FEs during the coppicing activities. The NFMIS is an information system used for operational planning as well as management and exchange of information between different involved partners in the forestry sector. Respective information on coppicing sites in Gugarq and Hrazdan FEs and implemented measures is entered and further managed in NFMIS.


The activity includes also human capacity building in coppice management and NFMIS. Representatives of Gugarq, Hrazdan and a number of other FEs of “Hayantar” SNCO will be trained. This will create capacities for further implementation of coppicing measures and use of NFMIS in “Hayantar” SNCO.
