IUCN and EFI have joined forces to present an open, high-level webinar and exchange on the New EU Forest Strategy for 2030. The webinar, organised via SINCERE and Integrate Network, will bring together key stakeholders interested in and contributing to the implementation of the Forest Strategy, to reflect on the key pathways for action related to the important role of forests in achieving Europe’s biodiversity, ecosystem services, and climate change targets.
The webinar creates a space for constructive dialogue and joint reflections on future implementation and collaboration within the framework established by the New EU Forest Strategy for 2030, and in particular its biodiversity and climate change objectives.
Participants are invited to reflect on the potentials of the Forest Strategy and Biodiversity Strategy to address and advance support for ecosystem services and the integration of biodiversity protection into forest management, to ensure resilience and productive capacity of European forests. Participants are also invited to discuss the need to reward forest owners for the multiple ecosystem services that forests provide, as highlighted by the New Forest Strategy.
