  • Vise-chair Lennart Ackzell presenting slide show with IFFA 2016 highlights

    The slide show accompanied the annual report from the char Peter deMarsh. The show and the report highlighted the important activities and achievements during the year. IFFA made and impact by participating in the Forest week and the forest action day of the Climate summit COP 22.

    One of the IFFA priorities is to influence the climate change discussion and the position of sustainable forest management and improved livelihood in the climate change debate. IFFA has reached a visibility in international forest politics as ever before. The new family forestry organisation, AFFON, has given IFFA valuable support at international events, and is proving results in the forest politics in Nepal.

    Organisationally IFFA are improving tools in communication, producing position papers and has maintained the registration in Washington DC. The by-laws will be revised next year, maintaining the adaption to a Washington DC registration.
