Main Regulation of the Chamber of Forest Engineers:

According to this “Main Regulation” the first objective of the OMO has been indicated as “to make offers and assistance to the official authorities and other related organizations by executing all kinds of technical and scientific studies in order to protection, expansion and operation of forests”.

When we consider this item and other related items, we see that one of the main objectives of the Chamber of Forest Engineers, even the first goal, is to protect the forests.

Furthermore, with a Presidential Decree of Turkey published at Turkey’s Official Gazette at the date of 2nd August, 2019, “The National Biodiversity Coordination Board” was established. The OMO took part in this committee as the representative NGO from nature conservation sector.

The CONFERENCE

The Headquarter (the Center) of Chamber of Forest Engineers is in Ankara, which is the capital city of Turkey as well.

In addition to headquarters (Center) of OMO, there are several “branches” located in different places of Turkey. These branches are established or removed by the OMO General Assembly according to regional situations and the number of members. The management of each branch is determined by its members in a completely democratic election.

In addition to the activities in Turkey, OMO, is working extremely active in the international arena. It has close cooperation with United Nations agencies including FAO.

As of 2018, OMO was the chair of the Council of European Foresters.

It is also an accredited Non-Governmental Organisation to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification. (UNCCD) https://knowledge.unccd.int/cso/turkish-chamber-forest-engineers

Very recently OMO applied to become a member of “The International Union for Conservation of Nature– https://www.iucn.org/ which is the global authority on the status of the natural world and the measures needed to safeguard it.
