Special attention will be paid to the requirements for establishing PES in diverse conditions throughout the region (e.g. public and private forests), as well as to the role of public authorities in PES implementation. An EU perspective on PES in the context of the CAP and the new EU Forest Strategy will be presented by a representative of the DG Agriculture and Rural Development.

ThinkForest is a high-level discussion and information-sharing forum, supported and facilitated by EFI after consultation with leading experts on forest policy in Europe. The forum provides an active and efficient science-policy interface, fostering an inspiring and dynamic science-policy dialogue on strategic forest-related issues.

A detailed programme of the ThinkForest event is available here.

Participation in the event is free, but due to a limited number of places (40 places), registration closes on November 19.
