Policy support


EFI aims at supporting EU policies and decision makers by providing unbiased information on a relevant scale. In this regard, EFIPLANT actively contributes to ThinkForest by contributing to the studies and initiatives it proposes, in order to bring objective information based on scientific research to the European Parliament and other policy forums.

EFIPLANT is also involved in the Pine Wood Nematode Information Web Page dedicated to the Nematode Issue: this is crucial for Maritime pine forest areas in Europe to keep stakeholders and decision makers up-to date.

The Facility in fact contributes to regional and transnational discussions on forests and plantation forestry at the regional and international levels by collaborating with FAO and other international organisations such as IUFRO.
