DescriptionEFIMED is a Regional Office of the European Forest Institute. The creation of EFIMED has been a natural evolution of the network of EFI Project Centre MEDFOREX (Mediterranean Forest and Externalities) which ran from 2000 to 2007. The aim of EFIMED is to coordinate and promote research and networking on Mediterranean forests, forestry and forest products. EFIMED will increase potential for funding forest research in the Mediterranean area. It will also improve the ability to respond efficiently to research needs and challenges related to the conservation and management of Mediterranean forests. One of the main tasks of EFIMED is the coordination and development of the Mediterranean Forest Research Agenda (MFRA); the MFRA presents a joint vision on the challenges of Mediterranean forests and forestry as well as the main research priorities for the period 2009-2020.
