EFI 20 Years Science and Policy Forum: Registration is open!

Since EFI is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year, we have special programme at the Annual Conference. This year, we dedicate Wednesday 25 September for a High-level Conference: ‘Our forests in the 21st century – ready for risks and opportunities?’ with Keynote Speakers such as Dr Eduardo Rojas-Briales, Assistant Director-General for FAO Forestry, Dr Janez Potočnik, European Commissioner for the Environment, Mr Kriton Arsenis, Member of the European Parliament. In the evening, celebrating EFI’s first two decades continues with a Gala Dinner.

The morning of Thursday 26 September starts with a session: ‘Risks to European Forests – What added value can a European Forest Risk Facility provide?’ with a session to present posters on risks and opportunities to European forests. Partly at the same time, EFI Market starts on another stage where EFI Associate and Affiliate members have the opportunity to give oral presentations on current research and/or activities of their organisation. On Thursday afternoon there are several parallel sessions in the Programme e.g. the Session on FLEGT-REDD ‘Shaping forest policy: Global initiatives and the European arena’. On Friday 27 September the participants have a unique opportunity to discover the forests around Nancy (All-day Field Trip) or the Centre of the National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) in Nancy, Lorraine (Half-Day Field Trip).

Register to the event here. More information on the event website or by e-mail ac20years(at)efi.int.
