    At the beginning of this New Year, the members of the Board of IFFA would like to wish you, your colleagues and fellow family forest owners a productive and peaceful year ahead.

    2018 was a year of change for IFFA with the transfer of Secretariat responsibilities after many years of great service from the Norwegian Forest Owners Federation, to the Farm Forest Smallholder Producers Association of Kenya FF SPAK). The Board looks forward to this new working relationship as we strengthen the capacity of IFFA to act as the global voice of family forest owners.

    Best wishes for the new year from

    IFFA Chair
