Former Swedish Prime Minister to chair high-level discussion forum on forests

The forum aims to promote communication, collaboration and partnership building between high-level policy makers and the science community, via the identification and discussion of forest-related issues and policies. The forum will also identify and address emerging strategic forest-related issues, to help all parties gain a better understanding of cross-sectoral challenges and to achieve better policy cohesion.

“The forum will help policy-makers to navigate the sea of information, and provide them with the best available expertise and the latest research-based information from EFI’s networks”, stated Marc Palahí, EFI’s Assistant Director for Policy Advice. EFI has over 120 Member Organisations and strong regional coverage in Europe through its Regional Offices. The forum will be launched in early 2012 at the European Parliament in Brussels.
