IUFRO The Advocate for Forest Science.
The International Year of Forests was an excellent opportunity for IUFRO to increase the visibility of forest science and promote science-based knowledge to a wider audience in line with our strategic goals. IUFRO also put on track six new Task Forces dealing with the cross-cutting key thematic areas identified in the IUFRO Strategy. The work in the nine IUFRO Divisions as well as in Programmes, Projects and IUFRO-led Initiatives was also highly successful throughout the year. Find details about all these activities as well as facts and figures about the organization in the IUFRO Annual Report 2011.
