Young Leadership Programme Mediterranean Edition 2020

6-10 July, Barcelona, Spain

The Mediterranean, with its ecological and social specificities, has untapped potential to contribute to the leading role played by the forest sector in the global bioeconomy. New ideas and approaches are essential to improve the management of natural resources in this diverse and dynamic region, while sustainable and functional bioeconomy value chains must be created to realise the full worth of the region’s forests and support its rural livelihoods. 

EFI’s Young Leadership Programme – Mediterranean edition (YLP-MED) provides training, knowledge sharing and networking on the conservation and management of Mediterranean forests, to increase and improve their contribution to a more sustainable and equitable bioeconomy.
