High-level policy makers discuss information-sharing forum

Dr. Palahí’s presentation outlined how in a complex and changing environment there is a clear need to strengthen communication, collaboration and partnership building between the science community and key policy makers in the EU and European Parliament. EFI’s Think Tank – a Brussels-based discussion and information-sharing forum for high-level policy makers – aims to meet this need by generating a fluent and dynamic science-policy dialogue.

Dr. Palahí said “research-based information and knowledge should be the basis for sound policy making in the current fragmented policy environment”.

The round-table discussion was part of a two-day event, European and Global Forests – Which Way for the Future? held at the European Parliament to celebrate the International Year of Forests 2011. The event focused on the challenges of sustainable management, conservation and development of forests in Europe and worldwide, against the backdrop of climate change.
