  • IFFA was founded in 2001 and was registered for the first time in 2006 and later confirmed by filing by-annual reports.

    The International Family Forestry Alliance started at an informal network between forest owner’s federations’ globally. The founders preferred a lean and mean organisation without too many formalities. As IFFA grew and started relationships with international organisations, among them the United Nations organisations, it was required that IFFA became a registered organisation in order to obtain accreditation and access.

    IFFA works on the international arena and with activities and working board members in most continents. The organisation chose, however, to be registered in Washington DC, since many of the international organisations have a US headquarters.

    At the moment, the organisation has its postal address at the Forestry House in Brussels.
