During its 11th meeting in November, EUFORGEN’s Steering Committee defined the areas of work for three working groups that will operate during Phase V (2015-2019).

Following up on a priority identified while preparing the proposal for this phase, a small working group will review the Indicator 4.6 (genetic resources) of the pan‐European Criteria and Indicators (C&I) for sustainable forest management and will propose how this indicator could be improved.

The second working group will be tasked to further develop a cascade decision-support tool for genetic conservation of forest trees, building on the recently published study “Approaches to the conservation of forest genetic resources in Europe in the context of climate change  [1]”, prepared by another EUFORGEN working group.

A third working group will embrace the challenging mandate to develop guidelines and decision-support tool for better incorporating genetic aspects into forest management practices, including production and use of forest reproductive material.

A full summary of the meeting will be available in early 2016.
