The 76th session of the ECE Committee on Forests and the Forest Industry (COFFI) will be held in Vancouver, Canada from 5 to 9 November 2018.
The Committee will review and guide activities in data collection and analysis, policy support, capacity building and communication. Under the title 'Building the Future with Forests', the meeting will focus on the transition towards a more sustainable society and a circular economy, based on the provision of forest products from sustainably managed forests.
In order to find tangible solution to these issues, the 'Building the Future with Forests' meeting will bring experts, policy makers, business leaders as well as national delegates together through a variety of panel discussions concentrating primarily on the challenges and opportunities for timber and forest products markets, as well as the forests and the circular economy. Numerous stakeholders from Europe, North America, and Russia are expected to attend.
