Welcome to "Japan Forest Information Review".presented by the Japan Sustainable Forest Management Forum

This site provides information about Japan's forests, forestry, and policies concerning them, and will cover topics including, forest certification, trade, green purchasing, forest monitoring, legislation, criteria and indicators of sustainable forest management, and so on.

The site will also provide various views from Japan on aspects affecting international forest policy issues, including the World Trade Organization, illegal logging, a forestry convention, the International Tropical Timber Organization, and the Kyoto Protocol, etc.

Humanity must address many issues during the 21st century, and among these, cooperation to achieve sustainable forest management is one of the key topics on the global political agenda.

We would be very happy if this site can make a contribution to that end.
