IUFRO is "the" global network for forest science cooperation. It unites more than 15,000 scientists in almost 700 Member Organizations in over 110 countries, and is a member of ICSU. Scientists cooperate in IUFRO on a voluntary basis.
Our mission is to advance research excellence and knowledge sharing, and to foster the development of science-based solutions to forest-related challenges for the benefit of forests and people worldwide.
In pursuing this Mission, IUFRO has identified three strategic goals and related objectives for the period 2015-2019 which support IUFRO as well as its members (see IUFRO's Strategy).
Forest and Forest Product Research
