Objectives and basics
The International Family Forestry Alliance, IFFA, is the voice of family forestry worldwide. The IFFA’s objective is to promote the development of family forestry and advocate supportive policies. IFFA will provide recommendations to international forest policy processes and provide a forum for exchange of experience, ideas and information.
The organisation was formally launched the 1st July 2002 (Pressrelease). The organisation was founded as an informal network between national forest owners’ organisations. In order to be recognised by the intergovernmental organisations IFFA is now incorporated in 2006 with its address I Washington DC, USA. The organisation will, however, still work as an informal, flexible network between national forest owners organisations.
