European Forestry Commission (EFC)
Created in 1947, the European Forestry Commission (EFC)is one of six Regional Forestry Commissions established by FAO to provide a policy and technical forum for countries to discuss and address forest issues on a regional basis. It meets every two years.
The EFC has a number of associated subsidiary bodies, including an Executive Committee; the Working Party on the Management of Mountain Watersheds; the Joint FAO/ECE/ILO Committee on Forest Technology, Management and Training; and the FAO/ECE Working Party on Forest Economics and Statistics.
FAO encourages wide participation of government officials from forestry and other sectors as well as representatives of international, regional and subregional organizations that deal with forest-related issues in the region, including NGOs, and the private sector.
