Established in 1991, the European Tropical Forest Research Network (ETFRN) aims to ensure that European research contributes to conservation and sustainable use of forest and tree resources in tropical and subtropical countries.
ETFRN promotes a dialogue between researchers, policy-makers and forest users, the increased coherence of European tropical forest research, and increased collaboration with researchers in developing countries through partnerships and other forms of capacity building.
The network has participants in different European countries. There is an ETFRN national focal point in each of these countries.
ETFRN provides a range of services, including its publication: ETFRN News, which comprises theme-based issues on research relevant to the international development agenda.
