Objective and target audience: Improve coordination and communication between experts involved in forest sector outlook studies in the UNECE region, namely from Europe, North America and the Russian Federation.

Background: The Joint UNECE/FAO Forestry and Timber Section, guided by the Team of Specialists on Forest Sector Outlook (ToS) and in close cooperation with the Russian Federal Forestry Agency  organized a 2-day workshop in the Russian Federation on how to harmonize the next round of forest sector outlook studies in the UNECE region.

Background and agenda

The event followed guidance received during Metsä2013, when member states requested the Joint UNECE/FAO Forestry and Timber Section that the next round of outlook studies in North America, Europe and the Russian Federation should be based on common methodologies and approaches, and developed in cooperation with relevant partners.

The event was financially supported by the Russian Federation.
