Dear IEFC-EFIATLANTIC newsletter reader, the whole team of the EFIATLANTIC wish you an happy and fruitfull new year. We are still using the IEFC website to disseminate news and announcements, and even if we will maintain all the services provided by this website for long, we hope to be able to send you our next wishes with the new EFIATLANTIC website.
As you can imagine, integration of all the new Regional Offices, with their history, know-hows, cultures and constraints is a big challenge for EFI. IEFC is playing a substantial role hosting the Regional Office team, and collecting funds of EFIATLANTIC. We invite all of you to attend to the next annual meeting that will take place in March on the 18th in Navarra to discuss about how to face this challenge and how to associate as much as possible atlantic organisations in this joint venture. A tentative programme of this day starting by a business meeting and ending with REINFFORCE seminar “Climate change : post copenhague challenges for forest” will be available here. During this seminar, you will understand more about international processes concerning forest to fight against climate change issues : FLEGT, REDD, quotas, voluntary contributions,
We wait for you.
