Task Force
Global Forest Information Service

The objectives

The mission of the IUFRO Task Force on Global Forest Information Service is to develop a strategy for, and implement, an Internet-based metadata system that will provide coordinated worldwide access to forest information. The resulting system will provide multiple benefits to information users and providers including, facilitating user-friendly access to a greater amount of information, and improving the dissemination and quality of forest-related data and information.
