LULUCF: practical consequences for the forest-based sector (meeting proceedings available now)
Joint workshop on the practical consequences of the introduction of the Regulation for the inclusion of Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF) within the 2030 EU Climate and Energy framework
Tuscany Region Brussels Office, Rond-point Robert Schuman 14, Brussels, Belgium
25 September 2018
The aim of the workshop is to assess how the new LULUCF regulation will or can be implemented and what the potential impacts on forest management and on the EU forest‑based sector are.
The main focus will be on the planning of future harvesting levels and potential implications for the domestic wood supply in the EU and, specifically, on the down-stream value chains.
The workshop is dedicated to experts of the forest-based sector stakeholders, and it is open to experts, stakeholders, policymakers and researchers who have an interest in the topic.
