International Poplar Commission (IPC)

The objective of the International Poplar Commission (IPC) is to promote the cultivation, conservation and utilization of members of the family Salicaceae, which include willows as well as poplars.

The member countries of the IPC include developing and developed countries and countries with economies in transition. The IPC has thus had an important role in the development of national forest sectors, largely through the exchange of ideas and breeding material. The IPC is the only forum that brings together managers, users and researchers in poplars and willows to discuss topics of common interest in a cross-disciplinary way.
