Abstract

The aim of this chapter is an overall review and analysis of the most important national regulative frameworks related to conservation and sustainable utilization of forest genetic resources in Serbia. A number of legally-binding and non-binding documents (strategies, laws and programs), which have an effect on the conservation and sustainable utilization of forest genetic resources, were adopted after the 2000s in Serbia. This issue is mainly the subject of strategies, laws and programs from the fields of forestry, sustainable development, environmental and nature protection. It could be stated that there is no adopted legally-binding legislation which directly relates to the FGR conservation in Serbia.
