Forests and Food: Addressing Hunger and Nutrition Across Sustainable Landscapes

On 6 December, Vice-President John Parrotta presented the GFEP report at Semi-Annual Meeting of the Council of Scientific Society Presidents (CSSP).


Founded in 1973, the Council of Scientific Society Presidents (CSSP) is a unique organization representing the breadth of science and engineering research disciplines through its member societies and federations. CSSP member societies are represented by their presidents, president-elects, and recent past presidents of leading scientific societies and federations whose combined membership is over one million.

On the occasion of the CSSP semi-annual meeting in December 2015, IUFRO's Vice-President John Parrotta participated in the session on Population and Food Security and presented the Global Forest Expert Panels, GFEP, and the latest Panel, on Forests and Food Security. He spoke in detail about the report that was published as a result of the work of the panel.
