The multi-actor network for sustainable management and resilience of planted forests

Cooperate

Founded in 1998, this association aims to facilitate and coordinate exchanges between stakeholders in research, education and the forestry sector. From 2009, the IEFC has slowed down its activity to support the EFI regional office for the Atlantic arc regions and since 2018 the EFI platform for plantation forests. In 2020, following the closure of the EFI regional offices in France, the association hired a director and staff to ensure the animation of the network and the coordination of activities and projects on the topic of planted forests.

Participate

IEFC is a transnational network of scientific and technical cooperation for the sustainable management of cultivated forests. IEFC brings together more than 30 organizations: research institutes, technical centers, universities, engineering schools, insurance companies, cooperatives and professional organizations. Any legal entity can become a member and participate in networking activities (thematic groups, events), as well as in the setting up and implementation of collaborative research and development projects. IEFC Membership provides access to a broad scientific and technological expertise and privileged contacts.

Share

IEFC promotes sharing of experience and capacities between its members and more broadly with actors involved in the sustainable management and use of planted forests. Among these long-term activities resulting from the IEFC network, we can mention the REINFFORCE network, the IUFRO task force on planted forests, or the silvalert application produced by the PLURIFOR project.
This activity is carried out within the European Union as expected of a European association. Do not hesitate to contact us to share your ideas and initiatives or to join the association.

Imagine in just one night you can discover the problems amphibians face around the world; discover what DNA is; how our bone structure has evolved; or how invasive species threaten ecosystems. Imagine a night when you will share a room with an African elephant, a family of wolves or bustards among many […]

What are novel decision approaches to deal with multiple risks and uncertainties in forest resource management?

Optimizing forest allocation asks not only for integration of multiple services but also taking into account multiple risks affecting forest processes and functions (Yousefpour et al. 2017). Moreover, climate change is challenging forest resilience and expected to change the severity and frequency of biotic and abiotic disturbances.
