CreatorInternational Model Forest Network (IMFN)
DescriptionThe 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 an innovative approach that combines the social, cultural and economic needs of local communities with the long-term sustainability of forest landscapes. Model forests promote the idea of forming partnerships to provide a neutral forum where a range of values and interests can be represented, and where a desire to experiment with new ideas under a common goal of sustainable forest management can occur. The primary goal of the IMFN is to establish a global network of model forests that will represent most of the major forest ecosystems of the world.
