EFI Webinar “Implementing Closer-to-Nature Forest Management”

Closer-to-Nature Forest Management is a concept proposed in the EU Forest Strategy for 2030. The idea is to provide a vision and direction for managed forests in Europe which improves their conservation values as well as their climate resilience. The EU Forest Strategy proposes developing a definition and adopting guidelines for closer-to-nature-practices, as well as developing a voluntary closer-to-nature forest management certification scheme. Now related guidelines were developed by the European Commission and published in July 2023.

The ThinkForest event asks:

• What are the suggested guiding principles and framework for flexible European-wide implementation of Closer-to-Nature Forest Management?

• What kind of existing nature-based forest management approaches are there – and what is their ability to support biodiversity, stability and adaptability to uncertain future conditions?

• How can we implement guiding principles in wider Europe and what are the barriers and opportunities for their implementation?

The webinar will take place on Tuesday 24 October from 10.00-11.30 CEST.
