Sustainable management of an agroforestry system certification scheme, the PEFC Italia example

Registration form


Forest certification is a voluntary, market-based instrument, implemented through two separate but linked processes: Sustainable Management certification and Chain of Custody certification (Traceability). PEFC has realized a specific certification scheme for Agroforestry and its products. The application field of the Agroforestry PEFC standard is the tree component of an agroforestry system and the elements connected to it. In this workshop we will consider the potential of this instrument, and the procedures and process for the certification of agroforestry systems in their own country.

Target audience

Accreditation or certification Bodies, consultants and professionals in agroforestry sectors, agroforestry companies, policy makers in agricultural and forestry sectors.
