FMI cooperates in the organization of a workshop called Towards harmonised Forest Observation, Reporting and Data Collection Framework. The workshop will take place on 14-16 September in Kutná Hora.
The objective of the workshop is to discuss at a technical level the state of the art in forest monitoring within the EU member states and its readiness to provide for a common harmonised Forest Observation, Reporting and Data Collection Framework as announced in the new EU Forest Strategy for 2030.
Experts from Member States and interested organisations are invited to the workshop. Presentations will be made by representatives from, for example, the European Commission, the European Forest Institute (EFI), FAO and Forest Europe. The conclusions of the workshop will be presented a month later at the informal Meeting of the EU Forest Directors General in Prague.
