Actions for 2017:
The MEDFORVAL project plans to broaden its network to a wider audience, with the integration of new sites. It was a general demand from our partners.
A second call for small projects is currently in progress (December 2016) and several projects have been submitted. For information on the first call for small projects, do not hesitate to follow this link: Calls for small projects.
Joint projects are increasing in number, and visits between member sites are requested.
The animation of the project's website (the forum, specifically), the social networks and the 2017 annual workshop are the main lines.
In addition, the project and the network will continue to be presented internationally, in particular within the framework of a fundraising strategy, designed to ensure the sustainability of the network.
The year 2017 will also be devoted to capitalization actions, with, in addition to the actions planned in 2016, the publication of a special issue of the journal Forêt méditerranéenne, publication and dissemination of a policy document, and the organization of a parallel event dedicated to the project at an international forum (5th Mediterranean Forest Week).
