This document presents the findings of a comprehensive research study conducted on Paraguay’s forestry sector. The primary goal of this study is to offer a thorough understanding of the sector, identifying its strengths and weaknesses. The ultimate aim is to draft a preliminary roadmap for the sector’s development and facilitate its transition towards sustainability.

The initial roadmap seeks to lay out strategies to boost the sector’s competitiveness and sustainability. Furthermore, it aims to identify potential new markets, emphasising exploring opportunities within the European Union (EU) market. Within this endeavour, strict adherence to the requirements outlined in the latest European Union Deforestation Regulation (EUDR) is deemed crucial.
