The 7th issue of SIFI:s newsletter
No fewer than four forest policy processes that call for our attention have been launched in Europe during the past five years –Forest Europe, the European Commission Green Paper, the revision of the EU Forest Strategy and most recently the International Negotiating Committee (INC) for a legally binding agreement on forests in Europe. These processes will influence forestry in Sweden and other countries, regardless of whether we take part or not!
A historical context
The 7th issue of SIFI:s newsletter summarizes the presentations from the seminar on 30th March about the development on the European level. The interconnection with the global level is added by Senior adviser Astrid Bergqvist and Former Deputy Director-General Ulf Svensson by placing the seminar in a historical context.
The views from Portugal and Russia
This newsletter sheds light on the driving forces and catch the essence of the challenges in different parts of Europe. Our neighbouring countries views (Portugal and Russia) upon the processes in Europe are particularly valuable.
