History of the Task Force “Multifunctional Forests and Sustainable Use of Timber”
The EUSALP Task Force Multifunctional Forests and Sustainable Use of Timber (TF MFSUT) has been established by the Board of Action Groups Leaders (BAGL) at their meeting on the 25th September 2019 in Innsbruck. The concept of it was worked out in Milan on 28 February 2019 in Milan; with the objective of fostering a cross cutting and interactive cooperation among the EUSALP Action Groups 2, 6, 7, 8 and 9 regarding topics linked to forests and wood. In 2019, the TF MFSUT received the mandate to support mechanisms for exchanging information among the concerned Action Groups, to further coordinate the elaboration of the ARPAF II project proposal “REDIAFOR” and to prepare a concept for a joint workshop at the Annual Forum 2019 in Milan.
On 8 april 2021, the EUSALP Executive Board, recognizing the utility of the TF MFSUT, endorsed a new mandate until end of 2022.
