Summary: This paper stresses that poor management in the forestry sector is a serious problem in the Arkhangelsk region especially as logging, processing of tree-products and timber trade are often conducted unauthorized. Adequate level of compliance with the principles of sustainable forest management will remain elusive and distant if the government cannot develop strategies and impose an acceptable level of compliance with the law. Since the problem affects the international markets as well, the authors suggest a negotiation process on issues of enforcement and governance with ENPI FLEG Program, which aims to support country level work and regional cooperation in the European Neighborhood Policy Initiative East Countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine), and Russia following up on the St Petersburg Declaration. The document points out that large companies are increasingly aware of their social and environmental responsibility and are very active in measures corresponding to the spirit of the ENPI FLEG process. These include: Voluntary certification; Formation and development of the Association of environmentally responsible governmental Lumbermen of Russia (FTN Russia); Improvement of corporate systems for tracking the origin of wood and wood products. In recent years, both domestic and Western companies operating in the forests of Russia have implemented their own approaches to solving problems of traceability of wood resources. This study developed guidelines for the development and implementation of coherent interventions to prevent and reduce illegal logging and the illegal timber trade and their testing at the regional level. It was formed on the basis of analysis of causes and forms of illegal forestry in Arkhangelsk region.
