FPS COST Action E19
National forest programmes

The main objective of the COST Action was to provide policy makers in Europe with improved means for formulating and implementing national forest programmes (NFP).

The Action provided policy makers in Europe with improved an means for the formulation and implementation of National Forest Programmes. The knowledge gained resulted in a large number of papers published as seminar proceedings and a book on country reports relating to national forest programmes. The most significant contributions are published in the Interim Report “Making NFPs Work” (2003) which can serve as a basis for codes of conduct of national and sub-national forest programme processes. In summary, the Action contributed to increased common understanding about sustainable forest management (SFM) and national forest programmes (NFPs) as well as contributing to the European body of knowledge on political science in Europe.
