ST. PETERSBURG, November 25 (RIA Novosti, Olga Vtorova) - The World Bank could allocate more than $2 million to help Russia implement six pilot projects in forest management, a Russian Federal Forestry Agency official said Friday.

"We want to create a database on every region, including a computerized forest harvesting information exchange system," Agency Deputy Head Mikhail Giryayev said.

The pilot projects are currently being implemented in six Russian regions as part of a plan to combat illegal forest harvesting and illicit timber trade.
