    • Work plan 2018
    • Nominations and elections

    The additional items will be the presentation of an assessment the Board has made of the priorities and effectiveness on the work in IFFA. The members will be invited to review and comment on the report and present their opinion on how the members can contribute to the work of reaching the visions and goals of the organisation.

    The members will as well be asked to share their wealth of experience, success stories and challenges in the different organisations. The aim of the discussions is to share practices and help each other to bring family forest in the different countries forward. The experience is that the background and the framework of family forestry are different in the various countries, but with many similarities and common goals. The experience from one country may help other countries to master their challenges in a better way.

    If you have comments to the program or other issues at the IFFA annual Meeting 2017, please send them to the secretariat at or directly to board members you will find at the contact section.
