Forest Communicators Network for the Mediterranean and Near East

The network is open to individuals, members of public and private sector, representatives of organizations, institutions, and other networks of interest and connected to the forest related issues. All individuals directly or indirectly related to forestry sectors such as users, decision makers, beneficiary or environmentalists, sociologists, anthropologists etc..

The network is expected to inform and communicate important aspects of the forests in the Mediterranean and the Near East region all in line with the challenges and opportunities these resources present. It is expected that the network, after its establishment would eventually develop a flexible, interactive but proactive structure able to meet the demands of all countries and members while contributing to the implementing of its strategy at all national, regional and international levels. At this stage we have identified important aspects for its establishment and for the long term based on the members’ suggestions.
