A Programme of EU Tropical Forestry Information Consolidation, Networking and Dissemination

January 1996 to December 2000

This project was concerned with the tropical forestry activities of the EU Member States. It looked at how communications and dissemination of information could be improved both within the European Union and between EU Member States and their developing country partners.

This unique analysis of a single sector was carried out over a four-year period and resulted in a variety of publications and project activities, including:
