Future direction of pan-European criteria and indicators debated
The forum will bring together international experts to discuss the findings from the CI-SFM project, which has provided the first objective review of the pan-European set of C&I for sustainable forest management, and of how they have been implemented. Policy makers and administrative bodies will be interested in the lessons learned over the last 10 years, and whether their efforts in data collection and processing are useful and making a difference.Hubert Inhaizer,
CI-SFM project leader said: “C&I have developed as powerful tools
over the last two decades, and have played a central role in the
implementation of sustainable forest management. However, the generated
information and assessments are currently only used in the forest sector
– now we want to explore new directions and applications for C&I in
a changing policy environment.”
The forum will bring together
regional analysis and experiences collected from national reports, and
allow discussion of achievements and good practices, as well as
remaining gaps and challenges, emerging issues and new, cross-sector
priorities for the future. A wide range of stakeholders from the forest
and other sectors is invited to attend.
The CI-SFM project is
coordinated by the European Forest Institute and financed by the German
Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection.
