The workshops supported capacity building and training for enhancing forest resilience in relation to the three forest risk themes:
Another purpose of the workshops was consolidating the network. The workshop participants supported the evolution of the European Forest Risk Facility strategy paper to create mandate in and for the network nodes across Europe. They served also to develop operating procedures for more formal collaboration between the Risk Facility secretariat, the network nodes and other network actors.
The workshops were organized throughout the project duration and hosted by expert organizations with specific competencies related to the three named risks. The workshops furthermore provided insights into ongoing scientific debates relating to the specific forest risks, related activities and projects, and highlighted practical experiences related to risk mitigation and management.
Workshop findings were processed as capacity building and training materials.
