International Model Forest Network

IMFN_LOGO_SMThe International Model Forest Network (IMFN) is a global community of practice whose members and supporters work toward a common goal: the sustainable management of forest-based landscapes through the model forest approach. The IMFN is comprised of all member model forests in existence or under development around the world.  Model forests are based on a flexible approach that combines the social, cultural and economic needs of local communities with the long-term sustainability of forest landscapes.

  • Distributing a range of promotional materials from the IMFN during field visits to the EOMF
  • Authoring a manuscript entitled Forest Certification as a Framework to Implement Sustainable Forest Management in support of a request for submissions to build a new IMFN marketing document
