El Consejo Nacional de Bosques se disolvió en 2007 y "la política forestal quedó subordinada", según lamentan representantes del sector
El futuro Consejo Nacional Forestal está un paso más cerca de constituirse tras diez años de espera por parte de los sectores implicados, como empresas y propietarios, después de que el proyecto de Real Decreto que aprueba su creación haya pasado la fase de consulta pública, abierta desde el 17 de julio hasta el pasado 7 de agosto, y estará compuesto por 50 miembros, 47 de ellos vocales en representación de los diferentes agentes implicados.

Este nuevo ente será un órgano consultivo del Ministerio de Agricultura y Pesca, Alimentación y Medio Ambiente (MAPAMA) en materia de montes y política forestal.

calentando cafeSweden celebrates Finland’s centennial with grants for forest research

As part of Sweden’s gift to honour Finland’s centennial, a research grant totalling EUR 2,7 million will be opened for application on Finland’s Independence Day, 6 December. The grants are available for projects proposed jointly by Finnish and Swedish institutions.

The purpose of the gift is to initiate a shared tradition of forest research for the two countries. The research institutions receiving a grant must use it to employ young researchers. In all, the money should be sufficient to employ 12 post-doc researchers.

The project, entitled Tandem Forest Values, is funded jointly by the Government of Sweden, the Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation, the Kempe Foundations, the Forestry Research Institute of Sweden (Skogforsk) and the Royal Academy of Agriculture and Forestry KSLA. One half of the total sum is put up by the Swedish Government.
