Future forest monitoring in the European Union – Conference in Uppsala, Sweden 11–12 November 2009

The conference aims to promote a streamlined European forest monitoring programme capable of delivering the necessary information in support of EU and member states policies of relevance for the European forest ecosystems.

The Conference should identify monitoring activities in the EU which must be maintained and strengthened to create a cost-efficient EU forest monitoring programme, including legislative measures, involvement of EU bodies and financial support.

The objectives are in line with the EU Forest Action Plan 2006 and its ’Key action 8: Work towards a European Forest Monitoring System.’
