FOREST EUROPE (also Ministerial Conference on the Protection of Forests in Europe) is a Pan-European voluntary high-level forest policy process. Since 1990, the aim has been to develop common strategies for the 46 signatories (45 European countries and the EU) on how to protect and sustainably manage forests.
The FOREST EUROPE Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) definition and set of criteria and indicators are internationally regarded as guidelines for SFM.
The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform allows stakeholders to inform the public about their work on DRR. The SFVC online platform is a useful toolto know who is doing what and where for the implementation of the Sendai Framework, which could foster potential collaboration among stakeholders. All stakeholders (private sector, civil society organizations, academia, media, local governments, etc.) working on DRR can submit their commitments and report on their progress and deliverables.
