EFI to support Forest Europe process
Forest Europe (formerly known as the Ministerial Conference on the Protection of Forests in Europe - MCPFE and established on 18 December 1990) is Europe´s high level political process that develops common strategies for its 47 signatories (46 European countries and the European Union) on sustainable management of forests (including the protection of forests) in the Pan-European region. It takes decisions on common aspects of the highest political relevance regarding forests, forestry and forest related issues in order to maximise the contribution of European forests to the ecological, social and economic well-being of the region.
In 2021, Germany will assume the presidency of the Forest Europe process (http://foresteurope.org) and also become the host of the Liaison Unit, which will be located in Bonn from 2021-2024. EFI will reinforce the work of Forest Europe by providing science-informed policy and communication services, while ensuring a strong link to EFI member organisations in many countries across Europe.
As part of this process we are now seeking a Team Leader for our Forest Europe Support Team. More information and how to apply can be found here. The deadline for applications is 15 June 2020.
