We conduct research and provide policy advice on issues related to forests.
- We facilitate and stimulate forest-related networking and promote the dissemination of unbiased and policy-relevant information on forests and forestry.
- We also advocate for forest research and for the use of scientifically sound information as a basis for forest policies.
These activities are conducted by our HQ and
Our work in the field of policy support includes enhanced support for decision takers and policy makers. We host the EU FLEGT Facility which supports the EU Forest Law Enforcement Governance and Trade (FLEGT) process in developing countries, related to the implementation of the EU FLEGT Action Plan.
