Learn about the progress of the GFEP Rapid Response Assessment on Illegal Timber Trade! Read reports from IUFRO meetings on topics ranging from genomics to managerial economics and DSS in forestry.


IUFRO as the lead agency and coordinator of the Global Forest Expert Panels (GFEP) initiative in the CPF was mandated to establish a GFEP Rapid Response Assessment on Illegal Timber Trade to cater for the need of systematically assessing and synthesizing scientific information with a view to informing more effective political decisions.

The objective of the conference on "Genomics and Forest Tree Genetics", which attracted 235 participants representing 35 countries, was to present and discuss new scientific findings in the area of population, quantitative and evolutionary genetics and how they can be applied in genetic resource conservation and breeding.

A special session on Forest and Sustainable Decision Support Systems at the 2016 International Conference on Decision Support System Technology brought together researchers from different countries of the world to present current research and case studies in the field of forestry decision support systems.

Read about other IUFRO meetings including the 17th International Symposium on Legal Aspects of European Forest Sustainable Development and the 1st International Forest Policy Meeting, for example.
