Monitoring future forests

Ecological concept,   nature background

Improved ways of monitoring forests are proposed in the EU Forest Strategy for 2030. Harmonised,
reliable data and information could contribute to better informed forest-related policies, as forests
provide biodiversity reservoirs and climate sinks, protect landscapes and provide wood and non-wood
goods and nature-based solutions for society. While the demand for forest ecosystem services is
clearly increasing, at the same time forests are threatened by increased disturbances, biodiversity loss
and climate change. Long-term data provision and analysis to monitor forests across countries is
needed to support policy-makers to take long-term decisions. A proposal for a new monitoring forest
regulation has been presented by the European Commission and published on 22nd November 2023.

Our ThinkForest event asks:
• What are the aims and objectives of the new EU forest monitoring regulation?
• How does the proposed monitoring regulation serve the needs of EU policies?
• How does the proposed monitoring regulation link to existing monitoring schemes?

This is an invitation only event.
