The European Forest Institute is an international organization with 29 European member states and 130 member organizations from 40 countries. It conducts research and provides policy support on forest issues, particularly “facilitates and stimulates forest related networking and promotes the dissemination of unbiased and policy-relevant information on forests and forestry” and “advocates for forest research and the use of scientifically sound information as a basis for forest policies”. The European Forest Institute hosts the EU FLEGT facility to support EU forest law enforcement governance and trade process in developing countries as well as the EU REDD Facility, which “supports partner countries in improving land use governance as part of their effort to slow, halt and reverse deforestation”.
