Mediterranean Forest Week

All the members of the organising committee commented on the success of the event organised by the Algerian authorities in Tlemcen and started laying out strategic perspectives for the next Mediterranean Forest Week which will be held in Barcelona in 2015.

The Catalan Minister of Agriculture, Mr Josep-Maria Pelegri, invited the Committee to reflect on the current socio-economic situation and to use it to advantage by focussing the debate on the relationship that our societies have with their forests, including important aspects such as the economy and innovation. The Spanish Ministry of Agriculture welcomed the idea to use the event as a catalyst and put the spotlight on Mediterranean forests through the organisation of high-level political meetings of Mediterranean agriculture ministers and international forest funds managers.

The first fully-fledged meeting of the Organising Committee of the 4th Mediterranean Forest Week will be held in Solsona on November 8th.
