EFI at the European Forest Week

EFI took part in the first European Forest Week in October both in events organised in Brussels and in Rome. One of the major efforts was the collaborative forest & wood exhibition organized in the EU Economic and Social Committee building in Brussels. In his opening speech of the exhibition Director of EFI, Risto Päivinen, assured of the growing forest resources in Europe and emphasized the need for communication. The exhibition will bring the message of forests – their role in climate change and the state of forests in Europe to visitors and workers in the European Economic and Social Committee building for a full month.

Remember EFI's Information Services

EFI maintains several databases within its Information Services, the latest addition is the EFIMED database. The newly published Mediterranean Forest database includes data on the state of the forest, as well as the quantity and value of wood and non-wood forest goods and services. The database has been built by EFI's Regional Office EFIMED and Research Programme 4: Forest Resources and Information.
