AGRI Committee Debate on Forest Strategy

On Monday, 28 February, the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development debated the role of forestry in the new EU Forest Strategy (full draft agenda). During the presentation of the draft report, Luisa Regimenti (EPP, IT), rapporteur for opinion, highlighted the importance of Sustainable Forest Management to ensure long-term production and maintenance of ecosystems’ services. Petri Sarvamaa (EPP, FI) emphasised that understanding the variety of forests is key and therefore the “the huge potential of biomass and increasing biodiversity and carbon sequestration cannot be done if they get a one size fits all approach.” For more information, please contact Irene di Padua.
