Parliamentary hearings as a part of the National Forest Forum

On September 14 in the Duma of the Russian Federation Parliamentary hearings "Problems and prospects of legislative regulation of multipurpose use of forest resources" took place. The issues of forest management, as well as protection of forests from fires were considered.

The company "Disicon" (the developer of the project "Lesnoy Dozor" to monitor the forest/farmland and detect fires forest/farmland in the early stages) was invited to participate in the hearings as the most effectively-established company in the market of video monitoring of forests. Since the launch of the project, the software package has been implemented and operates in more than 40 regions of Russia and several foreign countries. In these regions, the number of forest fires decreased by 97%!!! 

We have made proposals for small and medium-sized businesses in the field of forest video monitoring with a help of stationary devices (video cameras) in the legislative acts regulating the protection and prevention of forests of the Russian Federation from fire. The proposal of LLC "Disicon" submitted for consideration. We hope for further effective cooperation with the relevant committees and associations.
