Teams of Specialists

Teams of Specialists (ToS) are engaged to support the implementation of the Warsaw Integrated Programme of Work 2018-2021, provide advice, or work on specific projects. Their mandates are decided by COFFI and the EFC, and they report annually to the Working Party on Forest Statistics, Economics and Management. Guidelines for these teams of specialists can be found here.

The overall goal of all the ToS is to contribute to the implementation of the Integrated Programme of Work 2018-2021. Each ToS will support one or more of the main four areas of work, as well as the overall implementation of the Programme. Please see the figure below: 
Below you can find detailed information about each Team of Specialists, including their mandates and current list of members (if available).
