Hat: Public hearing "EU Forest Strategy: fit for purpose?"

Pgm2014 2020: Yes


The European Economic and Social Committee will in 2019 issue an opinion from the perspectives of organised civil society on the EU’s Forest Strategy “A new EU Forest Strategy: for forests and the forest sector” in light of the Commission’s progress report. 

This strategy sets two key objectives for 2020:
* Ensuring that all forests in the EU are managed according to Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) principles;
* Strengthening the EU’s contribution to promoting SFM and reducing deforestation at global level

As a part of its preparation and fact-finding, the EESC traditionally invites representatives of concerned organisations within the EU and outside for a public hearing to share views from anywhere in the spectrum of organised civil society. We are delighted to invite you to share your perspectives at this occasion. More information about this event will be published soon.
