The current site integrates separate and searchable databases that have been developed through several projects. One tracks the latest information on forest-relevant policy, as developed through EFORWOOD, ARANGE and GENTREE. Another database consists of innovative cases of non-wood forest products and on innovative forest management and conservation strategies, which has been developed through STARTREE and BeFoFu. The site also contains a database of relevant publications. The content included covers all fields (e.g. biodiversity, trade, forest, climate and environment, etc) that are of key relevance to the sustainability performance of the European forest-based sector.
The benefit of having a forest policy database is that it, for the first time, provides access to all policies relevant for the European forest-based sector in one location. In addition, the innovation database provides access to a wealth of information on interesting innovation cases relevant to forests and the forest-based sector.
The Forest Policy and Innovation Database is a free online resource for individuals that want to explore European Forest-relevant Policy and Innovation. To gain access and to start using the Database you will have to create an account.
