Preparing for the recommendations for criteria and indicators

The project has published its draft final report and recommendations. The report is the result of a joint effort, led by the European Forest Institute (EFI), to update the implementation status of the pan-European C&I for SFM with the state-of-the art information, for those interested in using the indicator set – including policy makers, non-governmental and governmental organisations, research and academia, civic society and other relevant stakeholders from inside and outside the forest sector.

In order to bring together the national and regional analysis and the expert input and allow the presentation and discussion on the preliminary findings of the project, a Pan-European Forum will be held in Vienna, Austria, 8-9 October, 2013. The Forum will provide a platform for discussion and deepen the understanding of C&I implementation. It will stimulate debate and provide the opportunity to bring additional inputs and perspectives to the review of C&I for SFM developments in the past 10 years, good practices and lessons learnt as well as remaining gaps and challenges, emerging issues and priorities for the future.

A wide range of stakeholders from the forest and other sectors are invited to attend the Forum: e.g. policy makers, inter-governmental and non-governmental organisations, EU institutions, civic society organisations, industries, managers, scientists, etc.

The project is coordinated by the European Forest Institute and financed by the German Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection.
