Approaches to understanding
the essence of the notion of ‘sustainable forest management’ are
systematized.The peculiarities of the Russian experience of forest relations
institutionalization on the principles of sustainable development are
identified. As the state policy of the Russian Federation in the sphere of
forest utilization, protection, preservation and reproduction is targeted at forests
retaining and growth, as well as meeting the needs of the population in quality
forest products and useful forest properties, the paper reveals the main
tendencies of forestry development in the Russian Federation in the period of
2007-2014.In those years, the activity on protection, preservation and
reproduction of forests on the state territory of Russia showed the decline in
the volume of activities and events.There was a marked tendency towards forest
resources loss because of wildfires. Methodological bases for state forest
man-agement monitoring with the view of forming ‘green economy’ in the context
of sustainable development and eradication of poverty are defined. The methodology
for sustainable forest development monitoring with the strategic goal of
sustainable forest management, i.e. support and accrual of forest social and
economic functions, is worked out having in mind the indicators of social and
economic tasks solving for forestry development and the analysis of the
dynamics of perception of social and economic consequences of forest
enterprises activity by the representatives of the bodies of local
self-administration and social organizations.
