Moldova

     

 

The Republic of Moldova is a landlocked country endowed with rich agricultural resources, located in Eastern Europe between Romania and Ukraine. It has a land area of 33,800 km² and a population of 3.6 million. The capital city is Chișinău and the largest city with a population of 804,500.

 

The country aspires to join the European Union and, to this end, has implemented an initial three-year action plan within the framework of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP).

 

Agriculture comprises 77% of the land, whereas forests cover only 11% or 386,000 ha with a total growing stock of only 47.6 million m³. Insufficient forest cover has been a major cause for a high level of soil erosion, landslides, water degradation and droughts.
