EFI strengthens its work on policy advice

Forestry is a global business and the forestry agenda is increasingly connected to the high importance political issues such as climate change, trade relations, good governance and poverty reduction. It was agreed by the Conference, that in this context the policy makers require best possible knowledge and science-based informationand that EFI is well placed to cater for these needs. 

Already for the past three years EFI has had a strong policy advice role already by hosting the EU FLEGT Facility which supports the EU Forest Law Enforcement Governance and Trade (FLEGT) process in developing countries, related to the implementation of the EU FLEGT Action Plan. EU FLEGT Facility assists the European Commission and the EU Member States in their joint effort of its implementation. The FLEGT Research Agenda is currently being built, and more information on it may be obtained from Tomi Tuomasjukka, Operations Manager, FLEGT Facility (firstname.lastname(at)efi.int).
