The Veneto Regional Directorate for Forests and Mountain Economy was created within the regional administration when ordinary regions were established in Italy the early 70s. The Directorate is the competent authority for agriculture and forestry in Veneto. The basis for the regional policy in this field is the “Regional Forestry Act” which determines the sectors of activity and the basic rules of forest management in Veneto.

The following aspects are concerned by this act: hydrogeological protection with special attention to mountain areas, the protection and the development of forests and pasturelands, the fight against forest fire, the forest road network and others.

From the organizational point of view the Directorate is organized in 4 Departments. One of those, the Forest Planning and Research Department, is competent for planning and forestry and carries out research activity in these fields as well. This structure will be dealing with the Carbon-Pro project.

More precisely, the activities of the “Servizio Pianificazione e Ricerca Forestale (SPRF)” may be summarized as follows: settlement plans, rearrangement plans, forest inventories, forest cartography, pedologic cartography, remote sensing, environmental management systems (ISO 14001), GFS and forest certification (PEFC standard), forest technology, forestry, etc. In the afore-mentioned fields the SPRF has published in the last 20 years 58 scientific and technical publications.

The development of activities related to the Kyoto Protocol goes back to 2003 when a specific convention was signed with the University of Padua. This convention is aimed at increasing the value of available databases, at estimating the stock of CO2 in the forests of Veneto and the capacity of carbon fixation of forest ecosystems. A specific report shall be published on this topic in July 2006.
