This workshop in Stockholm aimed at launching, scoping and coordinating the IBFRA Insight Process on boreal forest management

Each national team started by making a preliminary overview of the statistics and knowledge from their own country, but also brought with them a list of general key papers pertinent to the questions.

Team of experts identified gaps in our knowledge and has decided how to divide the future work between members of the team.
