The Standing Forestry Committee (SFC) and Civil Dialogue Group on Forestry and Cork (CDG) met jointly on 5 December 2017 in Brussels to discuss the implementation of the EU Forest Strategy and how to prevent huge forest fires in the European Union.

Back to back with the joint meeting, the CDG met for its regular session. The main items discussed were the Commission’s Communication on the future of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and Rural Development (RD) post-2020 as well as the ongoing review of the EU Bioeconomy Strategy. The CDG also elected Lennart Ackzell (LFA/Sweden), representing Copa and Cogeca, as its Chairman.
